“Come see where CocaCola was first bottled!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

A model T Coca Cola delivery truck meets visitors as they walk into the museum. Site offers a demonstration/history lesson about how Coke was first made and bottled. Admission also includes tours of the Biedenharn house and gardens. Visitors can even get a 5 cent Coke out of the vending machine!

“Beautiful museum & gardens”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

Loved the Christmas decorations on the most recent visit, the gardens are also just lovely, especially in spring. Doesn't take a long time to visit either.

“A delightful experience! Must see in Monroe.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013 via mobile

Visited this lovely place with my two children who adored the Coca Cola museum with the wonderful tour guide, "Tommy" who thrilled them with magic tricks! The .05 cokes were a treat! The home was lovely with a wonderful docent who made the tour very approachable. The gardens and fountains were completely breathtaking. The Bible museum was simply over the top with religious art and icons. This place was simply top notch. Of worthy mention is the gift shop, which is full of lovely items! Must see in Monroe! My kids adored it all!

“Tour”

Friendly staff, very informative tour. Learned a lot more about Coca Cola than I'd ever known before. The gardens were beautiful even in November.
