The new coke museum is definitely worth the trip. If you are having a hard time finding a spot in line for the aquarium, it's a great way to spend an hour or so.
Lots of Coca-Cola history, memorabilia, and free samples from around the world.
The tasting room is pretty cool. You can taste all the different coke offerings from around the world for free. Everyone is in a sugar frenzy pouring a few ounces of different drinks and rushing to the next one. They are sorted by continents. Everyone seemed to agree the drink, Beverly, was the worst and kids were having fun watching their friends and family try it and see the reactions.
I had been to the Coco Cola Headquarters at Atlanta and had a great experience there. Coke was born in Atlanta almost a century ago. The Coke Museum is a great place to go to and it has great videos which tell you how Coke started in Atlanta, its manufacturing, distribution. The cool part is that you get to taste lot of Coke products. The gift shop is a must go where you can find Coke memoriabilia you would love. My advice would be go thirsty and taste all the different Coke products. I think its called the 'Taste of the World'. If you are in Atlanta, try it ! Entrance prices were very reasonable too. For Adults its $9 and kids $5. Pepsi lovers stay away... just kidding..
Some people may feel that the World of Coca Cola is a rip off or nothing more than propraganda. However, I found the World of Coca Cola to be quite fascinating. Whether you like it or not, the Coca Cola icon is part of our culture and history. Here you can really learn almost everything about Coke. I was disappointed that there weren't as many flavours around the world as I would've like, and didn't really find anything too exciting or unique for purchase at their gift store.
The World of Coca Cola will soon be moving to its new location right next to the Georgia Aquarium - making all major attractions all within walking distance of each other!

Creating A Classic is the first gallery on your self-guided tour.
More than a century of Coca-Cola history begins here, with memorabilia and interactive video stations throughout your visit. This gallery features the Bottling Fantasy, an unusual kinetic sculpture depicting a fanciful look at the Coca-Cola bottling process. Gallery artifacts span the period 1886 to 1926.
the final gallery, highlights classic television commercials for Coca-Cola spanning over fifty years. Also featured are the story of Coca-Cola and Santa Claus and an amazing display on the evolution in product packaging and vending machines, including the first soft drink dispenser in space.
The World Of Coca Cola is located next to the Atlanta Underground, so it's very easy to find. It's like a Coca Cola museum, where you can learn about the history of Coke, since its begining in Atlanta in 1886. There are a couple of ad compilations that are really nice too. When you finish the tour, you get to the Tastes of The States and Tastes Of The World rooms, where you can taste some 36 different flavors of Coca Cola products from the States and from around the world.
Then, of course, there's a gift shop with LOTS of coca cola merchandising.
As most already know, it's not the President who is in charge of US policy making, but corporate powers. And what is the most well known corporate power in the US? The very symbol of American corporate "freedom"? Well, Coca Cola, of course. And their headquarters - the REAL White House - is right here in Atlanta. It is... THE WORLD OF COCA COLA!
A museum dedicated to Coca Cola. Coke was invented in Georgia, so it is a logical place for a museum dedicated to it. They have coke artifacts from the very beginning (it was invented in an Atlanta drugstore more than 100 years ago), before the distinctive-shaped bottles, even back to when the Coca stood for cocaine.
I didn't realize that until the 1930's coke was mixed in drugstores by soda jerks (they added an oz. of syrup, 5 oz. of water and some CO2 by jerking on various nozzles). Back then it paid to chum up to the soda jerk, because if he/she liked you, you might get some extra syrup!!!
All in all, I was disappointed. It was mostly just memorabilia and some advertising in film (they did have that ad I like - 'I'd like to sing in perfect harmony ...').
The best thing about the museum is that before you left, you could have your fill of all the soda pop you wanted - from over a hundred flavours. A lot of it lands up on the floor (lots of kids), don't wear your fancy shoes! Have you ever tasted pop tasting like green apples, lychee nuts, ginger beer, bitters?
Museum entry in 2004 was $7 for adults, $1 discount available anywhere.
The World of Coca Cola is, for most people, a tourist trap. But some seem to like visiting factories of famous products and taking their tours. So, if that's your thing, then you'll want to visit the World of Coca Cola.
This attraction is located in downtown near Underground Atlanta. For a charge of about $10, you can take a tour of the factory and learn about how Coca Cola is made. Unfortunately, they do not reveal the trade secret formula, as that would be worth the price of admission and then some.
The World of Coca Cola also has a store which sells, in addition to Coca Cola memorabilia, any type of clothing you can imagine, all forms of kitchenware and household decoration and other souveniers which all bear the Coca Cola logo.
Tells the history of coke which I breezed through. I wonder if someone has an old unopened cocaine flavored soda still around. If that happened today the vioxx lawyers would have a field day:)
The best part is the tasting area. In the first area you can sample all of their products that are sold in the U.S. Then, the next area is the international area where you sample their drinks sold in other countries all over the world. Some of the flavor are very what were they thinking bad for example the chinese lychee soda. There is one soda that I wish they sold in the US. That would be the green apple soda, which tastes like the jolly rancher sour apple candy I love.
