Along with sweet tea, no drink is more Texan than Dr Pepper. The iconic soda is loved by millions. Originating in Waco, Texas in 1885, it's the oldest major soft drink in America.

There's so much history behind not only Dr Pepper but the entire soda industry that it can be hard to keep all the facts straight. That's where the Dr Pepper Museum in Waco, Texas comes in.

This museum is dedicated to the history of the iconic Texas beverage and aims to teach about the history of soda in the United States in general.
