The three main elements of the vast square are the Kunsthalle, built in 1896, Hungary's last eclectic museum, opened in December 1906, and the Millennium Monument, which visually links the two; all three were designed by Albert Schickedanz in collaboration with Philip Herzog (the bronze sculptures on the Millennium Monument are by sculptor György Zala).
