Visitors start the journey by walking throug the Old Corner Drug Store and talking to Dr. Charles Alderton, inventor of Dr. Pepper. The next room showcases early bottling equipment, allong with the well and examples of the earliest Dr. Pepper bottles. The museum presents visitors with Wilton's Landing, a replica of a 1930's rural general store, along with temporary exhibits that highlight different brands and aspects of the softdrink industry.
