The Cyclorama is a historic painting depicting the Battle of Atlanta. It was completed in 1886, moved to Atlanta in 1892, was formerly on display next to Zoo Atlanta and now has a new home at the Atlanta History Center in Buckhead. The Buckhead MARTA station on the red line is closest to the history center, but is a 30-minute walk away. Explore transit options below.
