Historic Site · Gift & Specialty Shop
Visit the site where Caleb Bradham first invented one of America's favorite sweet carbonated drinks at Birthplace of Pepsi-Cola.

  • Not nearly as elaborate as the Coke place in Atlanta but this is the actual birthplace of Pepsi, not a big museum.  more »

  • What a great shop and museum. My grandparents were Pepsi Cola Bottlers so for me this was almost like going home. I certainly felt a connection to family while visiting. The prices were reasonable. With the influence Soft Drinks have had on America and the World this is a great stop. And its not over the top like the rival brand.
  • Very nostalgic. We stumbled upon it by accident! Small but quaint, but if you’re a Pepsi or Mt. Dew lover, kinda cool to say you’ve been there once. I have some family members who are “Dew” fans so it was a great opportunity to grab them some souvenirs.
