Wristband access to the public spaces in the Artesian Manufacturing and Bottling Company (AMBC) Building and the East Wing Building are available for rental guests at the reduced rate of $5 per person, which does not include a free Dr Pepper. If you would like your group to experience the Museum galleries as part of your rental, please factor in this additional fee on top of the rates for the spaces below.
The historic 1906 AMBC Building houses the original three floors of exhibits visitors can experience at the Dr Pepper Museum & Free Enterprise Institute. The AMBC Building is ideal for standing-only mingling among historic artifacts and classic architecture.
The East Wing Building houses Frosty’s Soda Shop, Peggy Pepper’s Emporium, the Emerson Holt – Ted Getterman Exhibit Gallery, as well as the Presidents Board Room and the Hillcrest Conference Center. The East Wing Building is the newly-renovated 1882 Kellum-Rotan Building, which was a wholesale grocery company and is one of the oldest buildings in Downtown Waco. While this building was not directly involved in the bottling or manufacture of Dr Pepper, it was the neighbor of the Dr Pepper Company for many years. We are happy to have been able to save this piece of history in Waco.
