The Cyclorama building was designed by Atlanta architect John Francis Downing and completed in 1921. It is owned by the City of Atlanta Office of Cultural Affairs and listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Cyclorama is home to the world's largest painting and America's longest running show, "The Battle of Atlanta." It is also the home of the historic Civil War locomotive "Texas" (hero of the "Great Train Race"). Through spectacular music, art and sound effects, history comes alive as you step back to July 22, 1864, and become part of the battle.
