Coca-Cola is one of the worlds most popular drinks and the World of Coca-Cola museum in Atlanta Georgia documents the success of the brand since it was created in 1886. The Circular visited the museum to see what it’s like and is here to tell you if it’s worth the trip!
The Coca-Cola museum was opened in 1990 and has had over 24 million guests come through its doors. With tickets at $17 each for an adult, The Circular bought two and queued up in the sunshine. After a 30 minute wait in the queue, during which time the crowds were entertained by jugglers and magicians, we entered the world of coca-cola to be greeted with chilled, and very welcome, cans of coke in every flavor. As it was included in the ticket price we took one cherry flavored drink and one vanilla flavored drink and made our way to the beginning of the tour!
The museum has several exhibits running and you can complete each one at your own pace. The coca-cola 4D Theater was a particular treat as is showed all the coca-cola adverts through the years and it was fun remembering the ones you knew as a child!
An interesting exhibit is The Vault, the location where the secret and valuable coca-cola recipe is hidden. Here viewers learn about how valuable the secret formula is and the lengths that the owners have taken in the past to keep it a trade secret. The Taste It exhibit seemed to be a firm favorite with many as you could try as many different coca-cola flavors from all over the world… be careful, some were delicious but many were questionable!
We ended the tour with a photo with the Coca-Cola bear and a some window shopping in the museum shop. While the tickets are good value and the tour is very interesting the memorabilia and souvenirs were very expensive so we didn’t make a purchase. Overall it was a very enjoyable and interesting tour and well worth the ticket price.
