Waco Museums You Must Visit

Waco is well-known for a number of things, but most people aren’t aware of the many wonderful museums we have here. Even families in will find it well worth the drive to Waco for a full day of museum hopping. We have our favorite museum spots at Greg May Hyundai of Waco, and we like to let people know about them. Below is a list of just a few of the great museums you can visit in Waco.

Dr Pepper Museum

Did you know that Dr Pepper got its start in Waco? The company moved its manufacturing to the building on South 5th Street in 1906. That building is now the Dr Pepper Museum, showcasing not just artifacts from Dr Pepper history, but also from other major soda makers. Once you’re done learning about soda history, stop in at the Soda Fountain to get a homemade fountain Dr Pepper mixed by a real soda jerk. You can even rent this Waco museum for weddings or parties.
