Nice museum, lady at the front desk was such a joy and got the tour started off on a good foot. The tour is self guided, so take your time. Fun to read the facts and see so many of the bottles they used and...More

Not worth you time or money. Very poor "museum." With the price of admission being $8.00, you would at least expect a free Dr. Pepper. You can see the entire "museum" in about ten or fifteen minutes.

Not a bad tour at all. Also not that great, learn about the history of the first soda, and then we had a float from the gift shop, soda fountain.

I do not drink Dr. Pepper or any soft drink for that matter. However this is an interesting museum as it has a lot of other history facts & artifacts. And, of course, the history of Dr. Pepper is interesting-even if one doesn't drink it....More

There are a lot of artifacts and snippets of Doctor Pepper including the newest tidbit of Dr. Pepper and Keurig joining forces. It's a nice time killer when the weather isn't so great (hot, cold, raining). Parking is free. I cannot recommend purchasing a doctor...More

Nice overview of how it all began. Enjoyed the history behind this drink. Movie theater played some of the ads for the drink, taking people down memory lane.

We were excited to visit the museum, and thankfully went on a "First Friday" when there was free admission. It was interesting, but many of the displays were outdated and no longer operated. It was disappointing that so many things were out of order. It...More

I can't really say I'm a big fan of Dr. Pepper but I nevertheless enjoyed the trip through this museum. Informative but not over-long it strikes a good balance and is well worth the time and money.

There is no tour, you are self-guided. An hour at most should do it.

I think so. There was an elevator to get to upper floors.
