  • It was amazing shopping & walking through the Dr. Pepper plant. My mom & brother love Dr Pepper, so I brought them home some gifts. You have to try the Dr. Pepper BBQ sauce. It is delicious.

  • Nice little museum related to the history of Dr Pepper as well as the soda industry. Very educational if you take the time to read everything.

  • This place was awesome for anyone that loves Dr. Pepper! Their museum had very cool items in it. The gift store had cool merchandise. The Dr. Pepper float was amazing and I usually do not like floats! I wish I would have been able to try the Dr. Pepper flights or make your own bottle of Dr. Pepper but maybe another time. Very cool experience for the family!
  • What an amazing experience. I love history,- and the history of the space, the product, and all the time periods are well-reflected. They were purposeful with the education through the generations and didnt leave out the importance of the civil rights movements. A museum focused on it's impact through the generations with respect to social marketing and purposeful intentions behind research that goes into the marketing- they highlighted employees past and thanked everyone involved for who gave of themselves do the product- including Baylor university students. They truly stand by “it takes a team” motto. The chance to have a root beer float in the space that makes the product is not to be missed. Very glad we came. Great great tour.
