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.

We enjoyed the trip down memory lane and history lesson about the F5 tornado that ravaged Waco in 1953. Would recommend a visit b/c it's something different to do and it wasn't too crowded or expensive to enter.

My family loves Dr Pepper and big red so it was a trip down memory lane for us. The soda shop was great for the floats!

We enjoyed the museum because we had the time. I wouldn't say it is a must for sure. The commercials were really funny and surprisingly up with the times of when they were shown. It's within walking distance of The Silos.

I only give this museum 3 stars. It's 3 floors and has a lot of display cases full of empty soda bottles and soda advertising. I definitely didn't think it was worth the almost $20 for 2 people. The top floor of museum was practically...More

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.
