We visited the Biedenharn Coca-Cola Museum in the old downtown district of Vicksburg. The original building demonstrates original architecture and the tour area, while self-guided, was informative. We completed the tour in about 40 minutes. We recently toured the Dr. Pepper Museum in Texas, which was much more informative about the original bottling techniques and marketing strategies of these soda pop companies. However, the tour in Vicksburg is well worth the $3.00 admission fee and the ice cream at the end of the tour was delicious, refreshing and well worth the few bucks for a cold treat.

This museum is not very big and quite simple, but very complete on all periods of Coca-Cola, and very rich in the number of original objects that shows very well the history of Coca-Cola... Furthermore the museum is in the exact place were the first bottles of Coca-Cola were bottled and sold... I think this museum is really worth a visit if you are in Vicksburg, and the visit is not very long, so you learn a lot in a small moment... And furthermore you feel the atmosphere and history there...

A small but interesting museum, showing how Coca Cola was first Bottled.
Lots of intersting Coca Cola memrabelia.
Well worth taking the time to visit if you are in downtown Vicksburg

This was a nice attraction in the historic downtown area that was very informative and not too long. You step into an old-fashioned ice-cream parlor setup (that still serves ice cream) and for a little over $3 per person, you're allowed to go through a long adjacent room that houses a small museum on the history of the first bottler of Coca-Cola.
It's a self-guided tour that you take at your own pace. After you go through the main display area (1 large room) you go outside through a small courtyard to another indoor area displaying a 1900-era soda fountain.

The museum material is primarily photos with explanations behind glass cases, with the actual relics of the old Coke bottling industry & advertising.
This was a quick, quiet and interesting little tour. It's nothing large-scale or extremely modern (no videos, music or interactive displays). But you do get the feel for the old-style store as well as a thorough history of the beginnnings of Coca-Cola bottling.
The whole thing took us about 30-45 minutes and we enjoyed it.

This is a nice little museum in downtown Vicksburg that traces the history of Coca Cola, with plenty of old relics involving the company from over the years. They also sell coke and ice cream, etc out in the main part of the building. Interestingly, this was like the best tasting coke I ever had, like it had less sugar or was slightly less sweet somehow, and you could really taste the overall flavor a bit better. They make it the old way, mixing the syrup with soda water right there. Wish I could get that at other places.
