    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.

    Birthplace of Coca-Cola. This museum/world is a nice experience for the whole family. It gives a detailed history of where this great soft drink is all about.
    Also a great shop at the end of the tour through the museum.

    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.

  • Great Time. Terrible Service.

    by LaurenHorne Written Jul 31, 2014

    I went to the World of Coca Cola and looked around the museum and had a blast! I wanted to take pictures with the polar bear, but I decided not to purchase them that day and that I would email them to get the proofs and order online. Before I left the museum, they told me that it would take 24 to 48 hours for them to receive the email and reply back. It's been 5 days and I have not heard a response from them. I called the World of Coca Cola in Atlanta, Georgia and they have told me that they would be promptly emailing me back and being fast about it and I haven't heard anything.

  • The New World of Coca-Cola-- Better than before!

    by Morgan_E Written Jul 14, 2009

    I've seen a lot of reviews on here about the old World of Coca-Cola but not many about the new. The New World of Coca-Cola should not be missed. I've been three times since it opened (about three years ago) and each time is a delight. It's educational, international, fun and there's a great build-up for the tasting room. Also, there are lots of interactive stations for kids and adults. Some of you may be skeptical--- I was too... But it's far more than just an unapologetic commercial for a mutinational brand. It is a story about how a hugely successful international business came to be....And Good or bad, Coca-Cola is an American icon. It is fascinating to see how it was built and what it means today. Also, if you want to do things that are little off the beaten path, this facebook page that I recently discovered is is updated pretty regularly and great for ideas.

    Have fun and Enjoy Atlanta!

    The World of Coca-Cola is exactly what you could expect of a SODA MUSEUM! Some of you people are obviously NOT FROM THE SOUTH. Coca-Cola has some deep history. My great grandfather worked for Coke back in the day & I have a VERY fond memory I have of him is all the Coke memorabilia in his house.

    We HATE Pepsi down here! With a passion!

    Listen, if you don't go into a restaurant, ask for Coke & they don't have it then you get really disappointed & order a WATER as opposed to a pepsi then don't even bother. In fact I steer clear of local places I know don't serve Coke products, no matter how good the food is. (which tends to only be mexican restaurants...?...)
    Or if you're just close minded & don't care to learn about a regions history.. DON'T GO!
    Alternative: Go back up north & drink your pepsi!

  • Headquarters of a household name

    by rianp Updated Aug 13, 2007

    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.

    Coco Cola World

    by abhyuday_c Updated Dec 22, 2006

    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..

  • World of Coke a bit Flat

    by cokeguy Written Sep 25, 2007

    When the original WOC opened in 1990 it was never intended to be a profit center for The Coca-Cola Company. There was a nominal admission cost at $2.50 for adults with lower price tickets for seniors, kids and students. Schools with a reservation were admitted free and received a guided tour from trained and professional staff members. The prices in the “Trademart” store were under traditional retail pricing and most of the merchandise in the early 1990s was exclusive to the WOCC. Senior Executives at the Company wanted the WOCC to be a place where guests could visit, learn about the history of the product, see how Coca-Cola was enjoyed around the world and leave with a “fizzy good feeling” about the overall experience. It was fully expected that the operation would be a cost center to the company at around $4+ million per year.
    The overall objective was to make people happy, deliver more than what was expected and to offer an experience that was unique for the time.

    The NEW WOCC is nice…it’s actually very “nice”. Now there is the Disney team running the show including the store. The parking deck of the new WOC actually cost more to build than the entire original WOC project.

    I question why the Coca-Cola Company is charging $15.00? While I don’t advocate the facility being “free” the Company should bear the expense of the operation.

    So, what’s the real difference between the “original” WOCC and the new? The uniforms are new, many of the staff are new, the prices are new, the exhibits are new and the location is new. Other than that it is still an attraction about a “brand”, albeit a great one. It’s still a drink and the Company is a still a company in business to be profitable. It’s a marketing tool that in reality is a fabulous tool to immerse and capture the hearts and minds of consumers - new and existing. It’s not a “franchise” - it’s a carbonated soft drink…..cheers!

    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.

    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.

    Coca-Cola Museum - Too light for my taste

    by Frisbeeace Written Apr 26, 2003

    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.
