Visitors to Vicksburg usually visit the battlefields but if you are in the town, it's worth a tour of this little museum. It's very small so doesn't take long but it's interesting to learn how this iconic drink and brand originated, to see original soda fountains and the original bottling method. There is a good collection of old advertising posters,... More

Great history on the place where Coca-Cola was first bottled and the process used. Did not realize that the cola was first only served via fountain soda. Cute little museum with memorabilia. Definitely worth a stop.

I was unaware of Vicksburg's role in Coca-Cola. I had heard from a couple of people that Coke started here I knew that was wrong. The truth is the first bottling of Coke happened right on the property where the museum is located. Very significant role in the history of Coke a Cola . It is small and the highlight... More

Just a bunch of old junk and faded typed notes. At only $3.50 this place is overpriced. Could have done so much better :(

Attention span of the little ones was short but even the gift shop delighted my guests from France, who enjoyed the memorabilia as part of their one day your downtown.

the information provided was interesting and informative. There is a lot of reading. It is a good story and even better if you are a coke fan. Lots of fun collectibles. will take you less than an hour. Skip the coke float
