Biedenharn Coca-Cola and Bible Museum

Our family enjoyed the little tour through the Coca Cola museum -- interesting history and our $.05 Coke we got to drink! The Bible museum was an interesting collection of very obscure and rare editions of the Bible and religious art work. Takes about two hours to visit both.

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.

[philip nelson, 03/19/2004]

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