Overview

A museum dedicated to the nation's oldest major soft drink - Dr Pepper! We offer three floors of exhibits featuring information about many different soft drinks, as well as a carefully curated selection of our massive soft drink memorabilia collection. Exhibits change regularly! You can visit our soda fountain and gift shop any time without paying admission. Photo ops outside the Museum include a Dr Pepper Green 1940s delivery truck, one of three original neon signs from the Mockingbird Plant in Dallas, and a hand-painted advertising sign original to the site. Of course the front of the Museum building itself is visitors' favorite photo location. We are a two block walk from Magnolia Market and the famous silos, and about half a mile from the newest restaurants including Torchy's Tacos and In-N-Out Burger.

Enjoyed all the history and things to see, but it was a little confusing in the first part because not everything was labeled. Also thought it should have included a free Dr. Pepper at the end instead of letting you buy one. The gift shop...More

This is a nice museum worthy of a couple of hours. I’m not sure why some folks complain. They have quite a bit of early soft drink arcana— a good perspective on how Dr P got started, marketing campaigns over the years, even an exhibit...More

Quaint 3 story building (with elevators) offers history of Dr Pepper’s inception, old bottling room, & fun facts. Small gift shop & ice cream parlor across the courtyard.

I think perhaps the museum is past its prime. It seems that upkeep has not been a high priority here, which is a shame. If you have a Dr. Pepper lover in your family, though, it is worth a stop!

No. It is in a separate building, which you can access by going into the courtyard where the picnic tables are and turning right instead of left.
