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 was a really interesting museum. The start, with the info on the tornado was unexpected. Got a great deal on Groupon that included a free drink from the snack bar. Took a couple of hours to tour.

The admission fee to this small museum is ridiculous for how little there actually is to the exhibit. However, Groupon had a fabulous deal when we went. Use Groupon and enjoy this cute little place at a fraction of the price. It is fun as...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.
