    World of Coca Cola

    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.

    The Real Capital of USA

    The REAL White (and red) House

    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!

    The sticky Coke museum

    by Redlats Updated Apr 1, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    photo courtesy of Coke website

    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.

    All things Coca Cola

    by goingsolo Written Mar 23, 2005

    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.

    World of Coca-Cola

    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.

    You will get a great tour of Coca-Cola history. However, the fun part is downstairs -- you can taste all Coke products, as much as you can hold, there are several bathrooms, too! :-;

    Fun for all ages!!!

    I really enjoyed this visit - from the Bottling Fantasy (see photo), a kinetic sculpture depicting a fanciful look at the Coca Cola bottling process, to the walk through of more than a century of Coca Cola history, from its beginning in 1886 to the present and then having a taste of my favourite soft drinks.
    In my travel dialogue I shall be adding more pictures of my visit here. I think that the advertising for Coca Cola was just brilliant - come to the museum and see for yourself.

    What better way to endorse an item than to make a museum out of its legacy?
    In true Atlanta fashion, this ode to consumer product allows visitors the opportunity to learn more about the World's most popular soft drink. The best part of a visit here is sampling exotic Coca Cola products from all over the World.

    Coca-Cola Museum - Too light for my taste

    by Frisbeeace Written Apr 26, 2003
    Coca-Cola Museum

    The museum was dissappointing too. I don't know what I was expecting to find there but it didn't impressed me. Plenty of old ads, boards and static memorabilia. A few boring movies. And finally, the chance to test all imaginable flavors of Coke and its less famous relatives. Kids where in paradise, yelling and running from machine to machine. The floor was sticky due to the spills. After 2 drinks I wanted to get out of that building. Perhaps an alternative for a rainy day with your kids....but not for me.

    You cannot leave Atlanta without going to Coke Museum, 'cause that's where Coke was invented more than 100 years ago. Find out the history of world's #1 drink, and try the international samples of soft drinks distributed by Coca-Cola Company in the 'Tastes of the World' section.
