Let’s go inside The World of Coca Cola, which is a museum in my hometown of Atlanta, Georgia. I love this place because it’s very accessible for power wheelchair users. Plus, I can taste test different varieties of Coca Cola they make around the world.
The History of Coca Cola
Did you know the inventor of Coca Cola was a pharmacist named Dr. John S Pemberton? He lived in Atlanta and created this unique soft drink and syrup flavor in 1886. In 1990, the original World of Coca Cola museum was opened in the Underground Atlanta district, then closed in 2007. This was before I was born. My mom visited the place a few times and said it was really nice. The new 92,000 square foot museum was built and replaced, opening to the public in May 2007.
Visiting the World of Coca Cola
I’ve had the chance to visit this place multiple times and can’t get enough. They have interactive exhibits and a 4D movie about Coca Cola. They display different Coca Cola brand drinks from around the world. They have a “taste it” exhibit room, the original Coca Cola secret vault and so much more. In the 4D theatre, it plays a short movie about a scientist and assistant trying more polo to recreate the secret formula.
Coca Cola “Taste It” Room
In the “taste it” room, you can taste up to 60 different flavors. The vault exhibit has lots of cool memorabilia and historical facts that my parents were even surprised by. There are lots of cool statues and pictures taking spots throughout the museum that allows you to have some pretty cool photo backgrounds.
Did you know that Coca Cola is sold in all but two countries in the world? They are Cuba and North Korea. There are other Coca Cola museums around the globe to visit as well but, none are quite like the original one in my hometown. When you get a chance, come check it out.
