"A museum dedicated to civil war! "
0

The Atlanta Cyclorama and Civil War Museum are one of the key attractions in town. Two floors of the building are filled with artifacts and photos of the Civil War. The staff was really knowledgeable and helpful too. There's a unique piece of art here too, which is a massive circular painting.

Atlanta Cyclorama & Civil War Museum

The Atlanta Cyclorama and Civil War Museum was a civil war museum located in Atlanta, Georgia, its most noted attraction being the Atlanta Cyclorama, a cylindrical panoramic painting of the Civil War Battle of Atlanta.

Modern media, such as IMAX, rendered this sort of portrayal obsolete.

It is currently closed to the public. The Atlanta History Center is in the process of restoring The Battle of Atlanta painting and relocating it to its Buckhead property. The restoration process began in 2015. The plan is to open the building in 2017 to allow the public to view the ongoing restoration of The Battle of Atlanta painting, with a full opening and dedication following in 2018. Once the painting has been fully restored, Atlanta residents, tourists, and other visitors can see The Battle of Atlanta as it was originally intended to be viewed when it was painted in 1886, a hyperbolic or hourglass shape.
