Biedenharn Coca-Cola and Bible Museum

I wasn't sure what to expect based on the description provided. I was quite surprised! The tour of the Coca Cola Museum was really nice and full of interesting facts and information. You also get a tour of the house, which was equally as interesting; you get to walk through the gardens, which were beautiful; and then the last stop is the "Bible" Museum, which is misleading. It contains so much more and is worth a look-see. Bring your nickels; every tour includes a five-cent ice-cold old-fashioned bottled Coke! You could easily spend an hour or more here strolling around taking wonderful pictures. Great deal for $6.00.

Biedenharn Coca-Cola and Bible Museum

Features the Biedenharn Home, built in 1913 by Joseph A. Biedenharn when the family moved to Monroe from Vicksburg, MS. Also a Bible Museum and Elsong Gardens. Joseph A. Biedenharn was the FIRST bottler of Coca-Cola in the United States. His original home has been turned into a Bible Museum, Elsong Gardens and various Coca-Cola items.

Two separate museums on one tour: Joe and his Coke memorabilia (including the world's first Coke delivery truck) and wife Emy-Lou's Bible collection. This museum looks fairly normal -- no scale model Last Supper constructed from vintage Coke bottles or anything...
