Neorama (Greek) describes a variant of the panorama in which, in contrast to the diorama , one sees a circular painting from the middle of a room, which shows the interior of a building. A neorama can be animated by figures and alternately illuminated.

The Frenchman Alleux invented this device and in 1827 exhibited the first Neorama, the interior of St. Peter's Church in Rome, in a specially constructed building in Paris .

Further panoramas are Diorama , Georama , Myriorama , Cosmorama , Pleorama and Cyklorama .
