The exhibit features a multimedia immersive journey towards the Chamber of the Secret Formula. Guests will learn about the secret formula's origins, how competitors have tried to copy it, how the formula has been kept secret over the years, and how that secrecy brought about several legends and myths.
The World of Coca-Cola also offers a 4-D experience with its In Search of the Secret Formula multi-sensory movie. The movie takes guests around the world while wearing 3-D glasses on a search for Coca-Cola's formula. There are also non-moving seats available in the back of the theater.

The Virtual Taste Maker at World of Coca-Cola contains several interactive activities within the exhibit. Visitors have the opportunity to create their own flavor combinations, just like how early inventors and pharmacists did.

Visitors can also join marchers as they journey up "Freedom Road."
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr's birth home was a Queen Anne style house that was built in 1895. In 1909, the home was bought by Reverend Adam Daniel Williams, a pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church. His daughter, Christine, married Martin Luther King at the church in 1926. Her husband moved into her family's home, where Martin Luther King, Jr. Was born. After Williams died in 1931, the Kings moved to a new home, however, the house remained in the family. Plans began in 1968 to turn the house into a historic museum after Dr. King's assassination. The free Birth Home Tours explore the interior of the house, and are offered to a maximum of fifteen people.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. became a co-pastor of the church in 1960, alongside his father.
The Behold Monument was created by Patrick Morelli to commemorate the principles that guided Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The sculpture was unveiled by Coretta Scott King in 1990, and serves as a lasting inspiration to those who stand up for social justice, human rights, and dignity. The African ritual of holding up a newborn child and speaking the words "behold the only thing greater than yourself" served as the inspiration behind the monument.

Attraction Spotlight: High Museum of Art
Located in Atlanta, Georgia, the High Museum of Art is the leading classic and contemporary art museum in Southern United States. Between the museum’s extensive art collection and renowned architecture, the High Museum of Art is definitely an attraction you don’t want to miss.
When the High Museum of Art was initially founded in 1905, it was known as the Atlanta Art Association. From 1905 to 1926 the Atlanta Art Association floated around town, showcasing its collection and exhibits. But, Mrs. Joseph M. High gave the Atlanta Art Association her Peachtree home, so the association would have a permanent residence.
During the next few decades, the Atlanta Art Association received various art and monetary donations that enabled them to prosper. Unfortunately, tragedy struck the Atlanta Art Association in the early 1960s. In 1962, the Atlanta Art Association began a specialized European at initiative, which involved 122 art supporters. The 122 members were to travel across European’s major art capitals, and return with new insight, knowledge, and possibly at work.
Unfortunately, the return flight was unable to properly takeoff, and crashed near Orly Field in France. What is known as the Orly plane Crash, left the global art community devastated at its loss. In order to honor the victims of the Orly plane crash, the French government granted the Atlanta Art Association a sculpture, The Shade by Rodin.
After the devastating Orly plane crash, the Atlanta Art Association revamped their art and educational initiatives. Within the next few decades, the Atlanta Art Association instilled new programs, and even created a new facility. In 1979, Robert W. Woodruff granted the association a $7.5 million grant for a new location. The $7.5 million grant eventually became a whopping $20 million, which led to renowned architect Richard Meier to design the new museum. The new museum building opened in 1983, as the same time the Atlanta Art Association changed their name to the High Museum of Art.
The High Museum of Art is home to over 15,000 pieces of art that include artwork from all regions of the world.
