Atlanta is famous for history, The Braves, hot weather and Georgia peaches - but perhaps it's most popular achievement around the world is Coca-Cola. A cold coke hits the spot during a hot summer. Located in downtown Atlanta, the World of Coca-Cola celebrates the history and culture of Coke, one of America's favorite soft drinks.

Need to Know:

Hours - The Coke Museum is open year round (expect on Thanksgiving and Christmas). Hours vary by day but are typically 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. on weekends and 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. during the week.

Location - Located in Centennial Olympic Park, the World of Coca-Cola has a dedicated parking deck located on Ivan Allen Jr. Blvd. between Centennial Olympic Park Drive and Luckie Street. Parking is $10. On Marta, use the Peachtree Center or the Georiga Dome stations.

Tickets - General Admission is $15. Children are $10. There are also a number of combo passes you can purchase for visiting other attractions.

Visiting the Museum:

The World of Coca-Cola is a fun, interactive experience that explores everything Coke. It is not an all day activity - the average visit lasts around 90 minutes, so it is perfect to pair with a trip to the Georgia Aquarium, Imagine It! Childrens Museum or another downtown attraction.

The museum includes collections of memorabilia from throughout Coke's history, including advertisements and collectibles as well as artwork featuring Coke's iconic image. There is also a movie about Coca-Cola and a chance to interact with characters like the famous Coca-Cola polar bear. Highlights of the museum include the bottling factory demonstration and, of course, the tasting room. You can sample over 60 different types of Coke drinks from around the world!

The World of Coca-Cola also has a store where you can purchase all kinds of Coke souvenirs.
