This museum was well worth the $6 entry fee. We learned of the history of Coca Cola, then visited the Biedernharn home, and gardens as well as the bible museum.

This place is lovely, but I would not recommend it for preschoolers and toddlers. It was too much sitting during the Coca-Cola presentation and I was politely discouraged from taking my 4 year old into the Beidenharn house. My son and I did enjoy the...More
