The Biedenharn Coca-Cola Museum was a collaborative effort between the Vicksburg Foundation for Historic Preservation, and the Biedenharn family, the original bottlers of Coca-Cola.

The museum houses a wide variety of exhibits interpreting the beginnings of Coca-Cola, the history of the Biedenharn family, the process used to first bottle Coca-Cola, a reproduction of the equipment first used to bottle Coke, the history of Coca-Cola advertising, and Coca-Cola memorabilia from past to present.

The authentically-restored candy store and office area feature furnishings and displays of the 1890s and offers ice cream, fountain Cokes, Coke floats and a wide selection of Coca-Cola souvenirs.

The Biedenharn Coca-Cola Museum is owned and operated by the Vicksburg Foundation for Historic Preservation, and is one of the Foundation's key success stories in preserving Vicksburg’s unique historical and architectural heritage

  • Really like this little museum. Beautiful old building. We really enjoy our visit. They serve coke floats. It's just a neat place that takes you back in time.  more »
  • honestly, unless you're a collector of Coke stuff you can probably skip this stop. It's really just a bunch of antique Coke stuff.Kind of meh if you ask me.  more »
  • This is the museum what is about the first bottling of Coca Cola. It is a very small museum with really only a lot of Coca Cola stuff, and the 2 or 3 machines that were used for bottling. Not recommended.

  • The first place coca cola was bottled. Great collection of coca cola membrobilia. At $3.50 a head entrance fee it is well worth the visit.
  • Not much to it. A lot of Coke memorabilia and information to read. Won't keep kids interested. Adults will do better on their own, if interested in reading the historical information and taking more time.
  • Great little place to pop in and learn about the origins of coke and it's production. Odd that it doesn't recycle the bottles that you can buy to drink from there.
  • Not worth the time. It took longer to pay then walk through the one room museum. The "old soda fountain" reeked of cat feces.
  • Unique cheap little tour for adults, coke float was good and worth every penny

Where to stay in Vicksburg

If you're enjoying a fleeting visit to Vicksburg, consider staying at one of many accommodations on Highway 20. Motels and hotels located roadside offer comfortable rooms for road trippers and are just a short distance from the historic downtown area and the town's numerous museums. If you're in town for a while longer, check out the downtown area, where antebellum homes have been converted into bed and breakfasts with charming rooms and well-maintained grounds.
