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.

I'm not sure this museum knows what it wants to be. Is it a collection of commercials you can watch on YouTube​? Is it full of old bottles? Is it run down? Is it full of right wing statements on free enterprise? Yes, but it...More

Being from Waco, I take a deep pride of Dr Pepper. This place is pricey but worth it if you love Dr Pepper. From the museum and the gift shop, its worth the money.

It wasn't bad, per se; but there just is not much there. The prices are very high and the building is not all that big. There are a few interesting things to see, but it does not justify what you have to spend to get...More

I expected more from the museum than it delivered. The displays seemed somewhat disjointed with many with signs that said that they were currently not working and "needing more fizz". I think it is a pretty apt description for the whole experience.

The venue is very nicely done - with limited time and the cost of museum admission we looked at the store and it was a major disappointment. If the museum was of a similar quality to shop, we're glad we didn't buy the tickets.

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.
