If you’re a fan of the crisp and refreshing taste of Dr. Pepper, there’s no better place to visit than the Dr. Pepper Museum in Dublin. The tiny bottling plant in Dublin, Texas no longer bottles the drink, unfortunately, but the museum features one of the world’s largest collections of classic soda memorabilia and is worth checking out.
Here, they have been bottling sodas for more than 120 years, and they are the oldest soda bottling facility in Texas. Visitors are invited to come and tour the historic bottle facilities and the W.P. Kloster Museum. The new annex opened back in December 2011, and is open seven days a week from 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. The museum offers five rooms and a state-of-the-art media room where vintage footage of Billy Kloster are shown on a 65’ DLP television screen.
The museum houses one of the finest collections of Dublin Dr Pepper memorabilia in the world, including vintage posters, rare calendars, many of Billy Kloster’s personal items, and more. Additionally, the museum sells strictly authentic Dublin Dr Pepper goods that cannot be found anywhere else. A trip to the annex costs $3.00 for adults, and $2.00 for seniors and children age 5-12. Children age four and under are free.
