Coca Cola through the ages, the Museum is set up like an old store with a soda fountain, in the back yard is one of the original soda fountains. Lots of examples of Coke bottles though the ages.

Charged a fee, for a 1/2 hour tour on your own and IF you read everything. Most of the interesting things were in the gift shop.

This little museum is full of history and memorabilia! Take as little or as long as you want reading through the history of Coca Cola and viewing all the changes the company has made through the years. It's worth your time!

This is a Coke museum so hard to say it was a must see. However, it was a quick trip thru the history of the drink and a walk that can take 5 minutes or 60 depending on your reading of all the information and pictures presented. Necessary, no, but certainly a fun little excursion that you will not be... More

Found this in a book listing 1000 places to visit so sought it out on an icy January day on our road trip. It was very neat to see all the Coke displays through the years.

If you have time, visit this. It does not take a great deal of time and is very informative if you are at all interested in the history of Cocal Cola. We thought the best part was having very good ice cream in the entry parlor.

Before the invention of bottling, Coke was made from an ounce of syrup and soda water in drugstores and soda fountains. Bottling made first home delivery and then retail sale. Lots of Coke memorobilia in addition to the bottling system.

You should see this museum and learn the history of Coca Cola being made accessible to rural areas. They have such great artifacts. It's a must see.

This little museum is small but historic in that this is where Coca-Cola was first bottled by Joseph Biedenharn. A no frills place with some interesting old bottles and memorabilia. You need to drive on to Monroe, LA and see the Coke museum at the Biedenharn Museum and Gardens. A much better and interesting history of Coca-Cola.
