World of Coca-Cola Atlanta Reviews
Yes, it's touristy and all that, but I quite enjoyed it! Nothing like knowing the history behind a global brand! Sep 29, 2016
At nearly $20 a ticket, it seemed expensive at first for what appeared a "modern" museum. That said, it's really interesting learning about one of the world's most celebrated brands.
You walk through a quick presentation on global moments with Coke, then a fairly flamboyant display on the history and secret of Coca Cola (including rumours - was the original formula invented in the US, or stolen from Scotland, or even as far as India?!). You walk through their quality process (very educational), you see coke being bottled (although this isn't a plant or anything) and a room with a vault that supposedly contains the secret formula.
There's a theatre that has a 4D show on the "formula" of Coke. And then, a tasting room with various global varieties (I tried the fruity ones from Asia, like pineapple and mango flavoured ones sold in places like Thailand). There's also a museum with various pop-art like Andy Warhol's works and a display showing global ads, etc.
This may not be for the true museum lover looking for 16th century exhibits and stuff, but it's a brilliant interactive educational way of learning about a brand anyone across the world can identify with.

Good place to cool off, and free tastings Jul 03, 2011
The World of Coca-Cola is a museum, that tells the history of the well-known soft drink, that is enjoyed around the world, for over a century now. It was invented by John Pemberton. Located in the same area, across from Centennial Olympic Park, and near the Georgia Aquarium and CNN Center.
Well, after going through security and the atrium, it starts off with a guide giving background on Coke, followed by a short 3-D film. It was forgettable, as it felt like an extended commercial made by Pixar. Then, you enter the museum.
The museum has exhibitions on the beginnings of Coke, and the various ads over the years. There is a theater where you can watch a short film on how Coke was impacted by pop culture, and various Coke commercials from around the world.
There is also a 4-D flight simulation ride, very much like what you would see at Epcot. It was mainly about finding the secret formula of Coke, which is well-guarded secret. An okay attraction, where you get splashed and get poked in the back.
In the end, there is a room, where you can try various sodas from around the world. Each soda tower is designated by continent. Some are good, some were horrible, and some had no taste at all. Also, you can try different types of Coke, like lime and vanilla. And everyone gets a small bottle of Coke to take with them.
Being in the headquarters of Coke, this place is definitely worth checking out. And a nice way to cool off when it’s very hot outside. And did I mention there that free tastings is included?
