The round-shaped, yurt-like, purpose-built panorama building was designed by architect István Novák, and erected between 1982-1992. By investing a total of 640 million HUF with the help of EU funding amounting to 463 million HUF, the Rotunda and its surroundings have undergone a major upgrade in 2010, including a new roof, two elevators, accessible restrooms, a new gift shop and snack bar, and a total of 880 m2 area of new and renewed exhibitions. Visitor Center levels are now fully accessible with elevators and ramps.
The new permanent and temporary exhibitions of the Rotunda cover the following subjects, among others:
- The Hungarian Conquest: from the time of occupation to the foundation of the Christian Kingdom
- Foundation of the state of Hungary
- Anthropological image of the Hungarian ancestors
- The lord and people of the Csengele Cumans: rare archeaological findings from the first authentically excavated grave of a Cuman commander in Hungary, and
- The monastery and settlement of Szer.
The continually updated, interactive exhibits of the Rotunda are living sources of information that enhances a deeper understanding and enjoyment of the Historical Heritage Park’s features.
