The large Neoclassical style structure, designed by architects Albert Schickedanz and Fülöp Herczog, was completed in 1896. It was originally built for millennium celebrations.
Its portico is in the Greek Revival style. The three-bayed, semi-circular apse houses a roofed exhibition hall with skylights. The building was renovated in 1995.
