Birthday Bonanza Event
In an effort to change things up and keep everyone out of the blistering Texas sun, we are no longer doing the Dog Days of Summer event. This year we begin a new (hopefully cooler) tradition of celebrating the Museum’s birthday with $2 admission all day and the same games and events you have grown to love between 10 AM and 2 PM.
As in previous years, visitors get an activity card and collect a prize when they visit each game station spread throughout the AMBC Building, the Courtyard, and the East Wing Building. Contests in the Courtyard are scheduled throughout the day with bigger prize packages available to the winners.
Birthday cupcakes and soft drinks are provided for free to visitors with their activity card while supplies last. A variety of fountain treats are also available for sale in Frosty’s Soda Shop.
This event would not be possible without our amazing sponsors: JRBT, Randy Slaughter, Royce and Janis Berger, and Robert Borchgardt. Thank you for your support! Sponsorships are available and much appreciated. Visit our website to become a sponsor.
Volunteering is another great way to help make the Birthday Bonanza successful! Email [email protected] if you are interested in volunteering this year.
$2 Admission at the Dr Pepper Museum & Free Enterprise Institute
The fun doesn’t end at 2 PM! Saddle up and come on down, because admission is $2 all day, even after the Birthday Bonanza event is over. We encourage Wacoans to take this opportunity to come see the new gift shop, soda fountain, and Emerson Holt – Ted Getterman Exhibit Gallery – a lot has changed since the last time you visited!
