Come learn more about everyone's favorite drink that was invented right here in Waco Texas!
Pharmacist Charles Alderton created the beverage over 100 years ago, back in the day when doctors believed that soda could fix any sickness or disease. Because of this belief, pharmacists would create different sodas that they believed could both cure the patient and also provide a tasty drink. Trying to find a type of medication, Dr Pepper was born.
Discover the history of Dr Pepper at the museum, where you will see how the cans and bottles changed from year to year. Not only did cans/bottles change, but so did transportation. See how transportation transformed; originating as a horse-drawn wagon to our modern-day delivery truck system. You ca also view actual Dr Pepper being bottled in the museum, where it has been bottled for years! But that's not all! The museum even offers a "Liquid Laboratory" for those interested in exploring the science of soda in our modern-day.
While at the museum, you can enjoy a taste of Dr Pepper in its original glory, with a few spritzes of the special syrup and carbonated water. Dr Pepper's flavored syrup consists of 23 mouth-watering flavors.
