Description
The museum is not just a glorification of the mystery flavored soft drink and the pop industry, but a peek into a bygone era. The first floor of the Waco museum is a recreation of the town itself, ... Read more
circa late 1800’s, when Dr. Pepper was first introduced to the world. In addition to old bottling equipment, you’ll find an old soda fountain and inventor Dr. Charles Alderton. The second and third floors take you through the 1920’s to today as well as to the Free Enterprise Institute.

A great local museum that is truly all things Dr. Pepper. Even if you don't love Dr. Pepper, this is still a great place to check out and grab a snack.

My friends and family recently went to the holiday celebration activities together, and I must say it was a ton of fun. Food and activities were included in the price of the ticket. The place seemed smaller than I remembered as a child but that's to be expected. Overall a nice night and I'm glad they hosted this event, looking forward to more events like this.

Everything you ever wanted to know about Dr. Pepper but were afraid to ask is on display at one of Waco's less notorious claims to fame - the Dr. Pepper Museum. I particularly enjoyed watching the Dr. P commercials from the '70's with Barry Manilow - 'I'm a Pepper, you're a Pepper, wouldn't you like to be a Pepper too?' The Dr. Pepper floats are the old fashioned kind and undoubtedly the best in the Great State of Texas.

Though Waco is better known for other things, it's also the home of Dr Pepper and this diverting little soda museum, soda fountain and gift shop. There's a ton of vintage memorabilia through the decades of the 20th century. The on-site "Free Enterprise Institute" that sings the glories of capitalism wasn't quite my style, but the cases of Dr Pepper made with real cane sugar (instead of corn syrup) were.

Yep, Dr. Pepper was invented here in Waco. We're proud of that.
