Boston's Most Historic Venue

Your guests to the Cyclorama arrive in the South End's tree-lined streets filled with historic brownstone houses in one of the largest designated historic neighborhoods in the country. Built in 1884 to house a 360-degree painting of the Battle of Gettysburg, the Cyclorama is itself on the National Register of Historic Landmarks and features old world charm with its brick façade and copper dome, combined with conveniences such as air conditioning and LED lighting, contemporary art in the salons, and the unmatched vibrancy of the BCA Plaza.

Boston's Most Unique Venue

Each event is unique, so Boston Center for the Arts tailors event proposals to the individual organizations.
