The Root Family Museum

Coca Cola collectibles carry one of the best-known logos in the world, one that has become almost a shorthand for United States consumer culture.

With every imaginable item relating to the bottling, advertising, and consumption of Coca-Cola in their collection, the Root Family Museum has one of the most historically important compilations of Coca Cola collectibles on which their family fortune was founded. Through a selection of glass bottles representing the changing trends in bottling over the decades, this exhibit chronicles the transition of the Root Family Glass Works into associated Coca-Cola, the largest independent Coca-Cola bottler in the nation. This collection includes everything Coca-Cola, from the evolution of the Coca-Cola vending machines to the science behind the construction of the Coca-Cola bottle.

One of the most recognizable brands in the world is Coca-Cola. From the iconic design of the Coke bottle to some of the most famous advertising slogans, fans of Coke are also avid collectors of all things related to the brand.
