What do you do when you go someplace new? If you’re like us you Google the top ten things to do in, wherever you are at. We are currently in Waco, Texas at the Corp of Engineers Midway park on Lake Waco.
One of the things to do here is visit the Dr. Pepper Museum. Just to get you in the mood this old advertisement was done in 1970
The museum is a mix of education, memorabilia and nostalgia. It’s all housed in the original factory location in Waco, Texas at 300 S 5th St, Waco, TX 76701
You might be from Texas if you get this ad.
The Museum takes you from it’s inception at the Corner Drug Store to the mega-soft drink maker that Dr. Pepper brands own and sell today. From horse and buggy to now.
There are many of the original cardboard posters, masks, sales gimmics, calendars and much more at this museum. It is truly unique in its own right.
Advertising posters and “hooks” were all part of selling soft drinks for the Artesian Mfg. and Bottling Company
Our visit was interesting and enlightening. I recommend a stop if you happen to be in Waco looking for interesting things to do. There is an admission fee at the museum but if you like quirky museums, this fits the bill.
