Dr. Pepper Museum

Awesome old fashion soda fashion and floats. The museum is small, but informative. On the second floor, they have some stuff for the kids to play with. But that stuff was entirely irrelevant to dr. Pepper, soda in general, or free enterprise. On the third floor, the had the free enterprise institute exhibits, which championed free market, etc. I'...

We decided to visit the Pepper Palace this weekend.  The museum is small, but has oodles of great information.  I really liked the toy area on the 2nd floor. My daughter was able to make a "toy" and watch it float in the wind tunnel.  In addition, she was allowed to color and touch the toys displayed.  Can't beat that with a stick.   We were able to visit the gift shop and the fountain which was really nice. I am not a fan of the soda, but you really can't visit this place and not try a Dr. Pepper.  I am glad I did.  It was really good.   My only gripe is that the lady(girl) working the register at the gift shop was a pill.  She never smiled and was less than gracious.  Maybe she should consider a new job if...

I'm a pepper, so going here for an hour or so with some family on a trip was fun.  We got old school dp from the soda fountain that's downstairs and a cool old time bottle opener for home.  There are three levels, and lots of dp stuff.  If you don'...

When I learned that the Dr. Pepper museum was a mere hour-and-a-half from Austin, it felt like fate. The Good Doctor's sugar and caffeine combo practically got me through college. In Illinois, the DP does not flow as freely as it does in the great state of Texas, so Dr. Pepper from a fountain was sort of rare. Unfortunately, I've had to give up my habit for the sake of my pancreas. But I knew I had to make a pilgrimage to Waco and pay my respects to the sweet elixir at the Dr. Pepper museum. It was...OK. I thought the $7.00 admission fee was a little high ($6.50, actually. The website had a 50 cents off coupon. 50 cents, really? You couldn't have gone up to a dollar??). And it's really more of a soda-in-gene...

Well, we all know it isn't a Smithsonian or anything of the sort but a museum of Dr. Pepper.  So you need to go into it with that mindset.  We have been twice.  Once with the family & once with a Girl Scout group.  I have to admit it was more enjoyable with our group & the sweet guide.  Here's why: With the family:  I think you really need to READ all the wall signs & listen to all the audios to fully get something out of it.  Was it fantastic....no but it was neat for a soda lover & the well & building had some interesting facts. With our troop:  Let's start off with there is a nice discount for groups!!  I also have to admit it was more enjoyable with the group because the guide gave us more interesting fa...

If you're driving on I-35, this makes a nice little stop.  There are some neat old trucks (and lots of space to hop around) outside,  real-sugar bottle...

Memo to the Dr Pepper/Snapple Group: This museum is giving you a bad name.... My wife basically swore off Dr. Pepper after our lame visit, and I had to remind her this museum is not affiliated with the real company, but is rather a non-profit. Anyway, if you just have to go here, make sure to stop off at the Waco Visitor Center to get a $1.00 discount off the $7.00 (overpriced) admission. The building is a *former* bottling plant, and it is useful to know that Dr. Pepper (along with Big Red) was invented in Waco. The bored-looking inbred lady at the counter even went so far as to use a counterfeit-checking pen on my $5.00 bills. WHO THE EFF COUNTERFEITS FIVE-DOLLAR BILLS???? The museum itself can be run thro...

Stopped in for a float on a roadtrip back from Fort Worth and after reading some reviews.  Didn't take a tour just went in for a float.  Parking lot was busy but shop was slow.  We went to the counter to order and the girl working was highly unfriendly.  There were 6 of us and we mostly ordered floats but my dad wanted a shake, she let out this huge annoyed sigh.  My dad said "is that bad?" And she said well I have to charge you extra for syrup and he said fine, she sighed again.  He finally said forget it and ordered a float.  The quality was great and everyone that goes should have one, not bad on pricing either.  The staff that we encountered seemed to be college/high school kids on holiday.  Really I wou...

I had high hopes for this museum for two reasons.  One, it was highly recommended to me by a family member.  Two, I have been to the World of Coca Cola in Atlanta....and thought that if it was anything like that one, I'd love it. So the museum was a let down.  A big let down.  First off, the exhibits were a bit on the dull side.  And then, if you want to sample what friends cal "the nectar of the gods", you have to pay for it.  The drink that I think is the nectar of the gods that resides in Atlanta, offers a huge sampling room from around the world.  And it's included in the admission price. Why can't Dr. Pepper give us a swig of his drink since we paid to go through his museum??  *sigh* I can;t see myself ...
