Pepper-Up: A Summer at the Dr Pepper Museum


In the summer of 2022, I interned at the Dr Pepper Museum and Free Enterprise Institute in Waco, Texas. It was a split internship where I spent the first half of my summer with the Collections Department before transferring to the Exhibits Department. I participated in the accessioning, deaccessioning, and cataloging of a donation from the Keurig Dr Pepper (KDP) – Dr Pepper Snapple Group (DPS). I documented newspapers, coupons, and ads as well as other fun objects. I also worked on two separate exhibits, mainly research and writing. This report explores the projects undertaken at the Dr Pepper Museum and Free Enterprise Institute.
