Atlanta Cyclorama & Civil War Museum
Tu to Sa from 09:15 AM to 04:30 PMOutside the gates of Zoo Atlanta on the grounds of Grant Park stands a stark, white marble structure housing the world's largest oil painting, the Atlanta Cyclorama. Painted in 1885-1886, the Cyclorama is a 365-degree mural depicting the Battle of Atlanta. This 1864 battle helped seal the South's fate during the American Civil War. A collection of artifacts and historical documents rounds out the museum, but the focus is on the one-of-a-kind centerpiece. Guided tours are available daily.
