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

  • Even though the admittance fee to this small museum is not much, the museum is not much. I don't think it's worth your small amount of time or small admittance fee. Lots of old Coke stuff.

  • The museum is not very large but oh they pack a lot of really cool information and memorabilia in such a small unique place. The coke float is good but nothing you couldn't do yourself. Would like to see more done with the 1900 soda shop setup in the back. Worth seeing but take your time, it brings back a few memories.
  • Great little museum. I love the history, will definetely be back. The floats and service were both great. So glad we stopped.
  • Cute little museum. Cold drinks in the June heat was nice. Staff was very knowledgeable!
  • Nice little museum with lots of memorabilia. Also, tried a coke float for the first time. Friendly staff! Definitely recommend.
  • Really cool history of the Coca-Cola bottling. Lots of memorabilia. Cool displays. Intriguing!
