This fantastic and very original building was constructed according to the plans of Ödön Lechner (see his bronze statue on the picture) and Gyula Pártos. This is the 3rd Museum in Europe dedicated to the industrial arts. The tendering was pubblicated in 1890 and the works began in 1893. In the year 1896, for the millenary celebrations it was already finished. The people didn`t like at all this very particular secessionist building, wich was provocatively modern in the uniforme eclectic cityscape, but today nobody diputes that this is one of the most beuatiful buildings in Budapest.
The rooftop is covered by the famous Zsolnai pyrogranite cheramics.
