Atlanta Cyclorama & Civil War Museum

Map
800 Cherokee Ave. SE, Atlanta, GA 30315, United States

The Victorian neighborhood of Grant Park (just south of Downtown) is home to the world's largest oil painting: the Atlanta Cyclorama, a 19th-century circular mural that depicts the Civil War's Battle of Atlanta. Visitors view the painting from inside; once they've taken a seat, they can watch as a central cylinder rotates, giving a view of the entire painting, which, if unrolled, would measure about 42 feet high by 358 feet long. A collection of Civil War artifacts is also displayed in the Cyclorama building—the most interesting being the Texas, a steam locomotive that was a participant in the Great Locomotive Chase of 1862.

Tip: History buffs should definitely check out the gift shop, which has a treasure trove of good reading.



Closed Mondays.



Admission: $10 adults (13–59); $8 seniors (60 and above); $8 children (6–13); free for children under 6
