I enjoyed the tour. It was very informative. The Coke museum was fun to visit. I thoroughly enjoyed the Bible museum. The gardens were alright. I will go back another time of year. I would give them a rating of 5 if they had a entrance fee to just go into the gardens.

We toured the house and gardens and were very surprised at the information that we learned and the beautiful gardens we saw! We are originally from Atlanta and had never heard of this location. However, there was a lot that we learned! The guide at the home was very helpful and taught us a lot about the museum.

I live 3 hours away and did not know about this museum. My 10 year old grandson and I enjoyed a delightful visit to the museum and home of the family who invented the bottling process for Coke. The house and gardens were lovely.

Beautiful gardens and photo opportunities. There is also a tour of the house and you get a good working knowledge of how Coca Cola got started.
