This is a small museum with lots of Coca-Cola items. There is a BEAUTIFUL marble fountain where they dispensed the Coca-Cola. Their claim to fame is they are the first place to sell Coke in a bottle. You can still buy the small, thick bottle Cokes there. Nice little stop.

Fun little museum, with some old things, some new things, but all related to Coca-Cola. Mr. Biedenharn took Coke from a soda fountain drink to bottles, being the first bottler of the now-famous drink.

Not so much a museum than more a collection of items branded with Coca Cola. The advertising material is interesting.

The museum is small but quaint. Saw a lot of stuff I remember my parents and grandparents owning - and I'm in my 60's. The real claim to fame is that this is where Coke was first bottled to distribute individual bottles to rural areas where people could not make it into the town to the soda fountain bar. It... More

Not sure it is worth the price of admission. Some interesting Coca Cola memorabilia, but you can probably find the history of bottled cola on Google.

Lots of coke memorabilia. Vicksburg is the town where coke was first bottled for distribution. Admission only $3.50 so a good value. Doesn't require a lot of time to go through.
