Not only do you get to tour the beautiful gardens but you have the added bonuses of the Coca Cola Museum and the Bible Museum all at one place. A must see attraction in Northeast Louisiana

Went on a rainy day l, but it was a treat! The Coke Museum was interesting, even bought a 5 cent coke from the machine. The house and gardens are beautiful with large fountains and sculptures.

If you are visiting Monroe you must see the Biedenharn. Beautiful gardens too and a Bible museum also. Nearby see the Coca Cola museum too. You will enjoy it.

Did not know this was an option when planning the trip and so glad we did it. Very nice stop and informative. Take the time to see it for sure. Make sure you have a nickel so you can buy a Coke! The house tour was beautiful as well as the Gardens. The short movie is worth watching and enjoyed... More

Interesting place to visit and learn about Coca Cola's history. There's a movie you can watch regarding the early Coca Cola days, interesting talks about how soda was first bottled. This is the only place were you can buy a soda for 5 cents from their antique soda machines. You can also take a tour of the Bidenharn house, learn... More
