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.

This is very nice little Museum about the history of Dr. Pepper, 7UP, Big Red sodas. This is very interesting exhibit. You can have a fresh Dr. Pepper made from scratch at the soda fountain located in the gift shop. I recommend this tour.

Dr. Pepper Museum's admission fee does not quite match with the exhibits in the museum. When I arrived at the entrance, I hardly noticed any visitors. The entrance looks shaggy and it has no sufficient visual appeal and focus. Instead of visiting the museum, I...More

As the official soft drink of Waco, couldn’t visit without a stop at the Dr. Pepper Museum. Chocked full of artifacts on three floors, it was an interesting walk through, particularly the space dedicated to the 1953 tornado. It would be difficult to keep kids...More

We had hoped to visit the museum but a fire alarm stopped our adventure. Fortunately we were able to drop in the soda shop for a cool treat.

Me and my 6 sisters took the tour of the museum. Very affordable and didn’t take too long to go through everything. We really enjoyed the clips of past Dr Pepper. I brought back lots of memories.

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.
