Fodor's Expert Review Dr Pepper Museum

Waco Museum/Gallery Fodor's Choice

While working at the Old Corner Drug Store in Waco, pharmacist Dr. Charles Alderton was experimenting with some chemicals and accidentally invented the soft drink he later called Dr Pepper. The drugstore is gone, but the original bottling plant remains open as a museum. Interesting exhibits and films offer a look at some early promotional materials as well as the manufacturing process. Much of the second floor is devoted to promotional materials tracing its history. After a look through the museum, most travelers make their last stop the re-creation of the Old Corner Drug Store fountain for an ice-cream soda or (what else?) a Dr Pepper.
