    El cyclorama es imperdible. Es una maqueta gigante que gira alrededor del espectador. La entrada es barata.

    Not only a Civil War museum and mural but also a place for some very thought provoking lectures. Go before they move to Buckhead!

    The largest painting in the country and one of only two cycloramas depicts a view of the Civil War battle from just inside the Fifteenth Corps lines at about 4:30 p.m. on July 22, 1864.

    Among the enormous collection of Civil War artifacts in the Cyclorama building, the most interesting may be the Texas, a steam locomotive that was part of the Great Locomotive Chase of 1862. Read more

    Only 3 cycloramas (a 360-degree view of a story as a painting) survive, and Atlanta's (1921) is considered the best. This painting depicts the Civil War's Battle of Atlanta. Civil War museum on-site.

    There's more to the Cyclorama than the Battle of Atlanta painting and "the Texas." Two floors of Civil War artifacts, weapons, photographs, uniforms and videos are also on display. Read more

    The cylindrical panoramic painting of the Civil War Battle of Atlanta here was the largest oil painting in the world until 2004, when it was surpassed in size by a mural at the Kalamazoo Air Zoo.

    This is a great place to take out of towners to give them a quick overview of the history of Atlanta and the War of Northern Aggression. It is fairly quick and inexpensive. Read more
