It's a cute little museum but not much to it. If you're a die hard fan or just need a break in the a.c. worth a stop. The lady at the front desk was super sweet and very friendly offering directions and tips around downtown. We only spent about 20 mins viewing it

An interesting and informative activity when in Vicksburg is a visit to the Coca-Cola Museum, the site where Coca-Cola was first bottled. Joseph Biedenharn, while working in his family’s candy business, decided to put what was at that time (1894) only a fountain beverage into bottles, so he could ship and sell it outside of Vicksburg. From such humble beginnings…

Comparably speaking, this is a small Coca Cola Museum after already visiting the Coke museums in Elizabethtown KY and Atlanta GA, however, it is nice and quaint and explains the history of Coke in the Vicksburg area as well as some very nice older coke memorabilia.

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.
