On February 22, 2019, Atlanta History Center opened Cyclorama: The Big Picture, featuring the fully restored cyclorama painting, The Battle of Atlanta. At the centerpiece of this new multi-media experience is a 132-year-old hand-painted work of art that stands 49 feet tall, is longer than a football field, and weighs 10,000 pounds. This painting is one of only two cycloramas in the United States—the other being the Battle of Gettysburg cyclorama —making Atlanta home to one of America’s largest historic treasures. Access to the cyclorama painting is on a first come, first served basis and is limited to 60 people at a time. A 12-minute film is projected onto the painting every hour on the half hour beginning at 10:30am Monday–Saturday, and at 12:30pm on Sunday. The last presentation is at 4:30pm daily.
