Atlanta Cyclorama & Civil War Museum
Visitors should be aware that the Cyclorama is a tourist attraction and its exhibits are not intended to provide interpretation of military or political history. The Cyclorama lauds the courage of soldiers on both sides of the battlefield while avoiding potentially controversial subjects. For example, there is little discussion of slavery or emancipation, or the goals of the Confederacy, the causes of the Civil War, or the historical significance of Reconstruction. However, the museum offers a fine introduction to the Atlanta Campaign and is not to be missed simply because it may not offer a complete history of the Civil War. Those wanting more historical information should consider the books that appear at the bottom of this page. Each of these books were written by leading historians of the Civil War.
The museum is now closed. The Cylorama been moved to the Atlanta History Center. The Grant Park building will be given to Zoo Atlanta, where it will be used as office and event space, including a new private viewing area for a proposed expansion of the zoo's elephant habitat.
