The Mindszenty Pilgrimage Centre’s 1.200 m² building houses exhibition halls, a conference room for 120 people, a community space and museum education rooms. The centre can also be visited as a place of pilgrimage.

The building’s “cape” is a perforated spatial membrane, always changing, creating subtle light and shadow play.

The interior spaces and shapes are clean, transparent and convey an uplifting feeling. Light is a particularly important component and shaper of the interior and exterior of the building.

On the ground floor, an open space provides services that generate community activity; a lobby, a café, a museum shop, an events centre and a community space with a separate entrance. It also houses the museum ticket office information desk. The first and second floors house the two exhibition spaces and associated museum education spaces, while the top floor houses a temporary exhibition and events space and a large roof terrace.
