The magnet system for the ATLAS detector at CERN consists of a Barrel Toroid (BT), two End-Cap Toroids (ECT) and a Central Solenoid (CS). The overall dimensions of the system are 20 m in diameter by 26 m in length. Before underground installation all coils will be tested on surface in a magnet test facility which is under construction. Moreover two model coils are tested as well as subsystems. In this paper the design and construction of the test facility is presented.
