On May 27, 2016 we opened the Emerson Holt – Ted Getterman Exhibit Gallery, Peggy Pepper’s Emporium, and Frosty’s Soda Shop in the East Wing Building. These spaces add an additional 10,000 square feet to our previous exhibit and visitor services space. Because a typical Museum visit takes longer now, our hours have been adjusted accordingly.
We have added several interactive elements in our exhibit spaces to enhance the visitor experience. Liquid Lab shows are scheduled throughout the day every day in the East Wing Building. Liquid Lab presentations include Smell a Pepper, Fantastic Flavors, and Recipe for Delicious, all of which offer opportunities for audience participation and hands-on learning. Times change seasonally. Gallery Talks are held in the historic Artesian Manufacturing and Bottling Company (AMBC) Building on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. The gallery talks we currently have available are about the architecture of the AMBC Building and free enterprise economics. The Dr Pepper Derby Track, gallery activities such as bottle rubbings, and Pop-Up Saturday events are other examples of the hands-on fun at the DPMFEI.
