Foursquare Tips

  • Created right here in Waco at the Old Corner Drug Store. Learn about the history of sodas, DP, and even Waco. Then, get a genuine DP from a soda jerk like they used to do at 10, 2,& 4.
  • The Home of Dr Pepper is the 1906 Artesian Manufacturing and Bottling Co.. It houses the Dr. Pepper Museuma, celebrating the native Texan soda with more than 100,000 artifacts.
  • Charles Alderton invented Dr. Pepper, first called "Waco," in a local pharmacy. He then began selling it as a syrup mixed with carbonated water at his soda fountain. Watch this video for more info.
  • Love the soda fountain. You can get a DP Float!
  • Had high expectations, but the museum itself was a let down, especially after having been to World of Coke recently. Fountain is the lone highlight of this place.
  • Be sure to stop in the shop afterwards and get a Dr. Pepper the original way.
  • Lots of amazing marketing material here with some questionable racial allusions made back in the day.
  • It's really fun if you like vintage stuff. I'm 15 but I still found it really interesting and definitely made me crave a Dr.Pepper afterwards. Fun for everyone!
  • Fun way to kill a couple of hours (max). Best part is the real Soda jerk. Intrigued by the Dr. Pepper floats.
  • Try a Dr Pepper or Big Red milkshake there like nothing you'll ever have! And be sure to thank your Soda jerk!
  • This is where it all started! Be sure to check out all 3 floors of Dr Pepper memories and nostalgia! On your way out, be sure to grab a Dr Pepper Float!
  • Only place in the world you can get a circle A gingerale.
  • Do to the DPM and take a pic in one of the TwitPic Photo Op locations and send it to them @drpeppermuseum on Twitter!
  • Stop by and look at all the wonderful exhibits, learn about America's oldest soft drink and try a pure can sugar Dr Pepper!
  • Lots of fun history & details about Dr Pepper's business & production.
  • Worth going and seeing, nothing crazy, but still kind of cool.
  • Cool three-story museum all about Dr Pepper, Big Red, and 7-UP
  • Well you're here so you kinda gotta do this. Love watching the old TV commercials, get a Dr Pepper from the soda fountain after!
  • They are so friendly and accommodating here! Don't fail to check out the soda fountain.
  • Very small but has a real soda jerk bar with fresh mixed soda and floats. Dr. Pepper blue bell float is true Texas!
