The Atlanta Cyclorama is the single largest oil painting in the entire world and makes an excellent attraction to add to your trip here if you want to experience a little Atlanta history. Everything about this massive painting is unique. The painting is one of only three cycloramas in the U.S. and there are only sixteen additional cycloramas overseas, where they are more frequently referred to as Panoramas. The circumference of the Atlanta Cyclorama is 358 feet, it occupies over 15,000 square feet, and the depth of the display (after the addition of the three-dimensional foreground or diorama) is 30 feet. It depicts the Civil War Battle of Atlanta and allows visitors to get inside the battle in a unique and interactive fashion. Check out the massive panoramic presentation of one of the most historic battles of the American Civil War.
