Turns out that Atlanta, GA is home not only for World of Coca Cola museum, but this city also hosts a CNN Center and you can actually book an inside tour here:
The Inside CNN Studio Tour is a 50-minute walking tour that descends 8 flights of stairs. Elevator assisted tours are available at 10:30 a.m., 12:30 p.m., 2:30 p.m., and 4:30 p.m. These tours tend to sell out quickly so reservations are highly recommended.
Pricing: Inside CNN Atlanta offers a once-in-a-lifetime view of the global headquarters of CNN. Ticket price per adult: $16. More info: CNN Tour

Get behind the scenes of Cable News Network (CNN), which is based right here in Atlanta, Ga. A 50-minute guided walking tour lets you peek into the newsroom, control room and much more. Be sure to keep your eyes wide open; there's no telling who you might see while walking the halls.
5 Reasons to Take the Inside CNN Studio Tour

In fact, during the Sid and Marty Krofft days, the space that is now CNN's main newsroom was a human pinball machine. The escalator is 196-feet long and eight stories high.
- You'll see how a teleprompter works.
- You'll find out how the weather map works.
- You'll watch the action inside Studio 7, the largest studio CNN has ever built anywhere in the world.
- You'll get a better understanding of how newsman John King moves things around on the touch-screen on election night
