We've visited this place twice and every time they keep adding something. It is a great place to bring the whole family. World of Coca-Cola, experience the fascinating history of the world's most famous soft drink in a dynamic multimedia attraction featuring a fully-functioning bottling line that produces an 8 oz. glass bottle of Coca-Cola for each and every guest. View over 1,200 never-before-displayed artifacts ranging from vintage bottles to a 1939 Coca-Cola delivery truck from Argentina. The thrilling, multi-sensory 4-D movie experience, "In Search of the Secret Formula", puts you right in the action before moving on to Taste It! where you may sample over 60 different beverages from around the world. Experience something new and inviting around every corner of the World of Coca-Cola.
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!!!
Dont' get confused with the one on Martin Luthur King St. -- Here's the NEW and expanded facility on Baker St., just above Centenial Olympic Park. The ticket now costs 15.00$ From the lobby, you'll get the chance to take picture with huge funky-decorated Coke bottles before walking thru the Coca-Cola Loft (pre-show, every 15-20 minutes or so), then entering the "Happiness Factory Theater," where they run a short animated behind-the-scene film. From there, they're 5 separated halls; From history of Coca-Cola to manufacturing demons. At the end of the hall, it's time to taste the unlimited 'soda' from 5 continents around the world!!
Open daily from 9 am - 5 pm
(to 6 pm June thru August)
Closed Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas Day
It is a place to tour and see the history of the Coca Cola empire. They have done a good job of featuring the many items and takes your through the times form inception. We used to go the old "old" museum, and it was very nice. The new one is more modern and features more for everyone to see and films. Cost is $15 and $13 for adults. Tour is about 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Open generally 9-5. It is now -2010-located by the Centennial Park and CNN Tower area.
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 museum follows the rise in popularity of Coca-Cola from its earliest days to its current place as an international best seller. World of Coca-Cola pavilion and interactive museum documents the history of the world's most famous soft drink, invented in an Atlanta drugstore more than 100 years ago. See hundreds of artifacts, exhibits and videos, watch how Coke is bottled and taste samples from around the world.
I won a VIP tour through the Coke World via an auction locally, and got a great tour through the facility---my favorites were the old TV commercials, the free old-timey bottle, and the free tastes at the end---over 50 different Coke branded drinks with some strange flavors like "flower" (japanese), mango, and some other cool flavors. You can stay in this area for as long as you like.
$15 for adults and $10 for 3-12
opens 9 or 10 until 6 or 7 in evening---see website
We were a little dubious about this "attraction", but it was included in our city pass so we figured, "why not?"
It didn't start too well. The attendants in the memorabillia room were cheerful as if their lives depended on it and the forced awe and merriment seemed pretty fake. Then you are treated to a cute, but slight (and bizarre) "documentary" based on the Happiness Factory commercial (the animated one where you see inside the coke machine).
After that though, things got much better. There is a detailed history of coke. An endless loop of ads that was way more entertaining than I care to admit. An excellent 3D movie - the best of this variety I've seen outside of Disney. Plus you get to sample an endless variety of products that Coke sells outside of the US.
I'll admit that it sounds like a corporate shrine to Coke, but it's hard to deny Coke their moment in the sun. How many products are known throught the world? They revolutionized marketing. I know - that's kind of a bad thing, but I have to admit it - I do love Coke and I actually enjoyed this for what it was.
It is important to visit The World of Coca-Cola if one is a fan of the culture associated with the beverage or simply a fan of the beverage itself. Tickets can be purchased individually or as part of a package with Tickets for the Aquarium.
A tour guide gives a brief history of Coca-Cola and specific objects in the first room before leading everyone into a movie theatre for a special "documentary" about what happens inside a Coca-Cola machine. The Documentary is an adorable cartoon and reminds me of Disney World. Great for kids.
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.
We had a lot of fun here. Our $16/adult admissions were comped by redeeming MyCokeRewards points, but you can get discount coupons at the visitors center if you do not belong to that program. This museum/homage to Coca-Cola and it's history really appealed to the collector in both my husband and myself. The vast amounts of memorabilia is impressive, and the 4-D movie was fun. We enjoyed the history room, including the exhibits behind glass - you could not view it looking directly at it, only if you stood to one side. Cool! We enjoyed watching the vintage, animated, and international commercials, but our favorite was the room where you could sample Coca-Cola beverages from around the world! Naturally, the exit is through the gift shop, and they had some really nice Coke items, everything from clothing to Christmas ornaments to housewares, to plush toys.
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!
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!
