“The Atlanta History Center is comprised of a museum, Cyclorama, historical Swan House and Smith Farm. The museum has various exhibits containing a large Civil War exhibit. This exhibit allowed me to understand the Civil War in a unique way…by the various artifacts shown…and the short films that were shown throughout the exhibit. The Cyclorama was an interesting part of the Atlanta History Center. One of only 2 in the country, it depicted the Battle of Atlanta in a very unique way. I would recommend this Center to anyone interested in the History of Atlanta!” said Jamakin15 on Tripadvisor
