The Atlanta Cyclorama and the Civil War Museum - A panoramic presentation of the Battle of Atlanta with authentic military artifacts from the period.

Movie - A 14-minute film shows events leading up to the Battle of Atlanta.

The Painting - The Cyclorama of the Battle of Atlanta is the world's largest oil painting, painted in 1885-86 by artists from Germany. It has been shown in Grant Park since 1893.

Diorama - The three-dimensional foreground, called a diorama, was added in 1936, bringing a depth of 30 feet to the display.

Civil War Museum - Artifacts from the American Civil War period are displayed on two floors and include weapons, photographs and uniforms. A touch-screen computer system tells the story of the war. Other videos recount period history and Cyclorama restoration.

Steam Locomotive Texas - The centerpiece of the museum is the steam locomotive Texas, which played a key role in the Great Locomotive Chase of 1862 (also known as Andrews Raid). The Texas was used by the Confederates to pursue and recover the locomotive General, stolen by Union raiders led by James J. Andrews. The raiders planned to tear up tracks behind them to disrupt the vital Western and Atlantic Railroad supply line between Atlanta and Chattanooga. The General is currently on exhibit at the Kennesaw Civil War Museum in Marietta, Georgia. The Great Locomotive Chase was the subject of a Disney movie in 1956.
