Relocation and Restoration of Atlanta Cyclorama
The Atlanta History Center is honored to be asked to restore and preserve The Cyclorama of the Battle of Atlanta painting and the steam locomotive Texas. These unique, historic artifacts need specific expertise to ensure their ongoing care for generations to come. As stewards of Atlanta’s history, we are prepared to dedicate the resources necessary for the restoration, interpretation, and preservation of these historical artifacts.
While the specifics of the Cyclorama and the Texas’s move to the Atlanta History Center are contingent on City Council approval, preparations to safely transport these important pieces of Atlanta’s history to their new home will continue to be mapped out. With plans to expand the Atlanta History Center’s facilities in place, these artifacts can continue to be given a distinct display in a museum environment.
The Atlanta History Center is home to one of the most comprehensive Civil War collections in the nation, offering visitors an unparalleled opportunity to learn about the Civil War as well as the details of the Atlanta Campaign when viewing the Cyclorama. The organization, as a whole, is prepared and excited to host this iconic, historic painting and steam locomotive for Atlanta’s community and visitors to enjoy for many years.
