A one-storey building in the romantic style, which is the aquarium-terrarium, was built in 1860. The famous Hungarian artist Mihaly Munkacsy has twice been a guest of this house in 1865 and 1867 where he visited his uncle, the Prosecutor of Lajos River. The fact of these visits is marked with a plaque on the wall, furthermore, the very name of the street (street mihály munkácsy), where the house is located, refers to this event.
