What is it? Housed in a 100-year-old Dr. Pepper bottling plant, this museum celebrates the history of America’s oldest soft drink and its place in Wacoan culture.
Why go? Dr. Pepper was created in Waco in the 1880’s – in fact, the beverage was initially called “Waco” because it wasn’t served anywhere else – and today, the Dr. Pepper Museum is one of the city’s major tourist attractions. The museum is stuffed with cool exhibits, vintage bottles and other memorabilia, but the real highlight is ordering an old-school Dr. Pepper float from the 1950’s soda fountain at the end of the tour.
