The World of Coca-Cola is a museum, located in Atlanta, Georgia, showcasing the history of the Coca-Cola Company. The 20-acre (81,000 m2) complex opened to the public on May 24, 2007, relocating from and replacing the original exhibit, which was founded in 1990 in Underground Atlanta. There are various similar World of Coca-Cola stores in locations such as Las Vegas and Disney Springs.
The original World of Coca-Cola was located in downtown Atlanta, Georgia, at 55 Martin Luther King Jr Drive, between the Georgia State Capitol and the Underground Atlanta shopping and entertainment district. The museum opened in 1990, and would remain open until 2007. The original World of Coca-Cola saw around nine million visitors during its years of operation, becoming Atlanta's most visited indoor attraction until it was surpassed by the Georgia Aquarium in 2009.

This is a really cool place. It's a place that is a must visit place if you enjoy Coca-Cola! Even if Coke is not your favorite, it is still a very cool place to visit. You're able to take photos in front of the vault and with the Coca-Cola Polar Bear mascot! One quick tip, while they have professional photographers taking pictures, they are expensive! It was $35 for a digital copy of the photos emailed to me or $25 for a single print! Just have a friend or someone take a photo with your phone camera to save the money! The 4D theater is cool. My favorite part is the tasting room where you can taste the many flavors of Coca-Cola products from around the world. Some are amazing while others are, well, interesting. You MUST try the soda from Italy! You'll never forget it! If you're looking to kill a couple of hours in Atlanta one day, this place is a great experience!

Great attraction. Kind of crowded but we definitely expected it. All the workers were great, very upbeat and fun. It's worth the $17 ($18.51 after tax) for admission. Take your own camera and ask people to take pictures for you around the place. Their pictures are $35 to $40 per set (polar bear pic, vault pic, couch pics) we opted to buy none (would have been around $120 for buy all) but the guy taking the pictures on the sofa area was definitely the best photographer.

If you love Coca Cola, you should visit! It's nicely put together, the building is beautiful, and of course there is a lot of information about Coke. Lots of history. We went because one of my daughters is a Coca Cola collector. It was entertaining, but I'm not really into soda, so it wasn't a great attraction for me. The tasting room was interesting. Flavors from all around the world. And the gift shop was nice. I checked out of the bucket list and probably won't go again.

At first i was skeptical thinking what could possibly be interesting about a Coke? Well I could not stop smiling from the minute i took my first tour to the end. This place is Amazing! You can drink All the Coca Cola you wish and learn about the history of Coca Cola. The Museum is incredible, beautiful, and the staff wonderful. I enjoy it very much and It made my vacation in Atlanta worth it. On the other hand, the security staff could be a little more Professional/ Friendly when interacting with people. Other than that I had an Amazing experience!

Yes, this is the worlds biggest advertisement for Coca-Cola. What else would you expect? It was fun, and although the first part of the visit was a guided tour of some old advertisements and an emotional video to get you in the mood, the rest of it is a self guided tour that is all covered by the cost of admission. I took part in the 4D adventure, but aside from the chair moving around, I didn't notice much else in the way of a 4D experience. Usually you'll have various smells or wind / water in your face to make you feel like you just dove into a giant pint of soda. The vault tour was somewhat interesting, but be warned, they don't tell you the recipe or show you the inside of the actual vault. Some people were expecting this, and that's just silly. If you're in the mood, you can get your picture taken with the polar bear, but the line was long and his costume made him / her look like a bear on the Atkins diet. Their tasting room was insane. People running everywhere trying to get samples in their cups. I wish there was more regulation in here, because at most of the stations, there would be one or two people blocking the soda pumps while they sampled all of the flavors for the various countries, and you couldn't get your cup in until they were done tasting and reacting to the flavors. The gift shop is one huge store full of Coke merchandise. Most of it can probably be found on Amazon, but it's still neat I guess to say you bought something from the WOC. Personally, I prefer Pepsi, but there isn't a WOP anywhere nearby that I can visit like this location in Atlanta. I can now cross this one off of my bucket list.

The best place to know the history and secret of Coca-Cola! Interactive experience with 120 flavors of Coke to taste from all over the world! The souvenir store at the end is a little bit overkill and some of the products are straight up overpriced. The staff is helpful and provide a good explanation of the history of Coca-Cola. There are 2 Come photo opportunities, one with "The Vault" and the other with a Coca-Cola White Bear. The entire experience is interactive and is very well designed. Complimentary coke in the waiting area is a nice touch and the overall experience does make you feel like have Coke over other sodas, at least for a few days (YMMV). So I would say it is a successful way marketing your product in an interactive and fun way!
Brent Crenshaw | Mar 18, 2018
It was... Interesting. I'm not sure what I expected really. It feels kinda like you paid to go into an advertisement. If you love coke you will probably enjoy it? The 4D theater was cool. The cokes from around the world was cool but seemed like half the ones I tried to taste we're just water (dispense broken). If you have an hour to kill it's not a terrible experience. Just kinda bizarre.

Cannot believe I have never been here before today! We had a great time!! So many cool pieces of memorabilia and pieces of art. Learning the history and story of one of the most popular drinks in the world was truly enjoyable. The tour was really cool and it made for a very fun Saturday morning. Tasting all of the various Coca-Cola products around the world was a cool experience! There is also a huge gift shop at the end of the tour if you want to pick up some items. Definitely recommend!

I had never been to a place like this. I am interested in history. This will give visitor's a really thorough experience of Coca Cola Bottling Company. Liking Coke products doesn't hurt. The only draw back was the room of a million drinks. Floor was really sticky. Other than that for the money (2adults around $40) wasn't to bad for the experience. I recommend that while in Atlanta if you have time go visit this area. Just get an early start as there is more than the world of coca cola and the aquarium there. Just get a city pass if you want to do all of them.

A MUST as an attraction to Atlanta! You get greeted with a complimentary can of coke as you walk in! After that, you go into a room full of cool artifacts from Coca Cola's history. Then, you watch a film, and after that, you're set free into an open area with multiple exhibits. One showcases pop art, another one is the vault with the secret formula, another is the manufacturing processes, a 4d movie, and finally, the taste testing room with different coke products from all around the world! You have to check them all out and try every single one to get the full experience! After that is the gift shop. Its definitely worth it to visit this place, and you wont see another like it anywhere else in the world for sure!

#LetsGuide. Great place and very modern. Well organized and clean. It has an accessible entrance for wheelchairs and own bathroom. A and even has parking too. The site is based on the history of one of the largest global companies; the Coca-Cola! You will like the place because already at the entrance of the building has a good welcome service with the right to win a company drink, whether diet or in the classic and original version. With good and friendly guides who walk with people everywhere in the place that shows everything in more detail. There is a movie theater that explains a little film about Coca Cola and its growth. A marketing move to speak the truth and content to be passed on to visitors is very, very fun. And still owns the company's bear mascot. Truly a place that leaves nothing to be desired. Congratulations to the organizers and collaborators.

I thought this would be super hokey, but an Atlanta friend insisted we go while I was in town. It was actually a lot of fun. There's a lot to do there, and it's pretty interesting. The 4D movie was silly and aimed towards young kids, but I still had a blast at 31. The drinks around the world was cool-some tasted great, some were horrifying. The best part of this place is the employees. You can tell everyone loves their job and enjoys interacting with the visitors. We had the pleasure of speaking to Alonda, who was very informative and super fun. It was a great experience.

I love coke, and this place was a must-go for me. I thought the price of admission was too high, 17 dollars for an adult. With that, you can have as much coke as you want, try a lot of other flavors, listen to some history that can easily be googled, and watch a 6 minute long commercial. That commercial is heavy on emotion and I loved it. Didn't see that commercial anywhere else. This is a one time place. Once you are there, you really don't have to go again. But go there once, if you are a coke fan.
Tim Benson | Apr 27, 2018
Fun area to visit. There are many things to do in and around the World of Coca-Cola. There is a great deal of information on the history of Coca-Cola. The information is presented in several different formats to increase engagement. There are many photo stops within so you should be able to get some great shots to pick from. The tour is primarily self guided but is initially started with a short presentation by a staff member that concludes with instructions if how the building is layed out. You finish with a tasting area so that you can sample flavors from around the world. Once you leave there and enter the gift shop you cannot re-enter. They will take some pictures of you that can be viewed and purchased in the gift shop.

During my trip to Atlanta I was at the aquarium when I noticed the conveniently placed World of Coca-Cola next door. The tickets were 20 a person so I thought what the heck I'll check it out. We were not disappointed! The tour starts with a free soda which includes life Coca-Cola made with real cane sugar. You then learn some history and watch a short feel good coke film. You then begin your self guided tour. Some of the sites you can expect are the history of Coca-Cola, artwork and prior sponsorships, and artifacts from over the years. There is even a room where you can taste over 100 Coca-Cola products from around the world! The coolest thing there is the vault where they keep the only written copy of the Coca-Cola recipe! The staff and the guides are great and it is well worth the money!

Okay, so I paid $5 for parking near the exit of World of Coca-Cola, not bad. Then I went to admissions and provided my military ID which gave me free admission. Yes, free (thank you)! As soon as you enter you watch a short film in a standing room with tons of memorabilia on the walls. It's similar to a Disney or Universal ride entrance. You then enter the small museum where you can explore the exhibits and meet the Coked out polar bear. You then leave to go to the fountain machines wear you can taste test all different flavors of Coke products. This was actually pretty cool, I enjoyed a lot and I'm not even a Pop kinda guy. As you exit you get to watch a conveyor belt with Cokes being made and you're given one on the way out to the gift shop where everything is overpriced. If your easy to please or with children you'll be sure to have a good time.

So much fun! They accommodate everyone! Take your time and really go through and read. You'll enjoy it. We have a two year old and she even enjoyed it but I would choose not to take her if I had to go again. It's a experience for children 4 and up. At 2 she was too young to care about anything. The staff was great! Their polar bear was a fun photo opportunity! Tasting every pop from around the world was amazing! Learning about the history! All awesome! This place is a must see for Atlanta!
Matthew Ridlen | Jun 1, 2018
Fun place, but I’m not sure the cost is justified. My daughter was so excited about the “free” Coke that you get when you walk in and we all loved the tasting room, but it’s definitely NOT free. The staff member that presented in the first room (I can’t remember her name) was so great! Very fun and engaging personality. She set the tone for a fun afternoon learning about the history of my fave drink!
Wenda O'Neill | May 29, 2018
If you enjoy coca-cola memorabilia you will enjoy this museum. The tasting room was fun (if a little sticky), the 4D movie was a great idea but the graphics weren't great. The vault presentation was fun and there were hundreds of photo opts. Overall, the best part of this experience was the people I was with... After attending I felt like I had paid $17.00 per person to get a free Coke and see advertisements, I guess if I really thought about it, I should have expected that. SO... I'll give it 4 stars... because I should have known.
Rehan Syed | Jul 11, 2018
Nothing beats an ice cold Coca Cola on a hot summer day!! And it’s all free! I enjoyed the commercials presentation along with how the Coke is produced. You can try Coke products from around the world, it’s pretty cool. Some drink they serve in Italy was horrible, rest were pretty good. Frosty Melon from Thailand was my favorite. To top all this off, you get to spend money at Coke Store. All in all excellent experience!
Jacklyn Drake | Jul 7, 2018
Such a cool experience especially if you’re a fan of Coke! They start the experience off with you choosing a Coke of your choice to sip, and then you go to a quick presentation of the history. We initially thought this was going to be a bore but the tour guide was AMAZING and she made it fun! Inside the museum there is lots to see and experience from “The Vault” to the taste testing where the floors are the stickiest you’ll ever experience! This place does a good job at showing the international presence of Coke and how far the brand really has come. The famous Polar Bear is also there all day for you to take photos with and they have a fun 4D experience that is (very bumpy!) so be warned! Overall this is great for the entire family and will bring lots of “cheers!” 😊

We went on Friday morning with one kids aging 15, 12,10 and 4 and each child's interest was held and their comments favorable. If you love Coke then you'll love seeing and learning about the history of this worldwide popular soft drink. You even get to taste Coke products from around the world. When you first arrive you are welcomed with a small can of very cold Coke product. There is a 4-D movie, a chance to sit down in a room and view Coke commercials from around the world (Russia was rather funny), another room with a heart-warming video (another chance to sit) of Coke related messages of goodwill and love. Remember, it's a museum and it's all about Coke. The gift shop has everything and anything Coke. There will be lots of displays to trigger your best memories of youth (so it will be okay to smile to yourself or bore your children and grandchildren with stories of how you used to pay 5 cents for a coke.) We were there for 3 hours. We parked in the parking lot for the Aquarium (don't pay $20 to those parking lot street hawkers) and just walked across to the World of Coke. It's all wheelchair friendly as there are elevators to the second level. Time your meals as there is no food on site.

If you are in Atlanta, this is a must go place. It provides the history of the company to all the different flavours available in the world. A 4D short movie is a cool add-on. Before leaving make sure to taste all the flavours of Coca-Cola from different regions. You will definitely like that part. Souvenirs are also available at exit if you are a big fan of Coca-Cola and would like to have crazy stuff having the logo embedded.
Karen Li | Jun 30, 2018
The exhibits are great at the museum. It's not very large, but everything is very engaging and interesting. They have you free Coke at the entrance an had a nice introduction video. My favorite parts were the 4D movie and tasting room. The movie was exciting with all of the effects. The tasting room was huge with do many flavors from each continent and country. I'll definitely visit again if I'm in Atlanta.
