Join museum staff for an insightful discussion on specific aspects of the collection or exhibitions. All gallery talks are free with museum admission. Accommodations are available for visitors who are deaf or hard-of-hearing. Please notify museum staff before a demonstration/gallery talk to learn more.

Free Enterprise
The Free Enterprise system is one of the cornerstones of the American economy. It is through this system that businesses all over the U.S., including Dr Pepper, have grown and flourished. This gallery talk expands on those points and uses the example of former Dr Pepper Company CEO W.W. “Foots” Clements to educate visitors on the principles of invention, innovation, and competition. Held on the 3rd floor of the Artesian Manufacturing and Bottling Company Building.

Wild West
Gather round the campfire and settle in for a tale! Join us as we examine the myth of the Wild West. Since the 1800’s the American idea of adventure on the frontier has been a prevalent subject of popular culture. In conjunction with our temporary exhibit, “Dr Pepper’s Wild West”, this gallery talk investigates the origins, development, and endurance of the myth. Held on the 2nd floor of the Artesian Manufacturing and Bottling Company Building.
