    The first pieces of the remains of Rudi, the world famous primal ape were found in the mid-1960s in one of the abandoned fields of the iron ore mine still active then in Rudabánya, in north-east Hungary. The mine was closed down in 1985 and then the huge hollow of the exterior cultivation was filled up with by water which resulted in the deepest body of water in Hungary. Of the seven sites Nos. I., II. and VII. are located on a well-defined but not very extensive site. A roof to protect it was built above them in 1977 which totally decayed as time passed and its remains are an eyesore sight unworthy of the archeological site. In 2011 the development concept started and as a result the Exhibition building, reception structure, look-outs and study trail have all been finished recently. During the design stage an exemplary cooperation was formed amongst the designers and students of the Doctoral School of BME (Budapest University of Technology). The architectural concept was as deeply influenced by the memories of the former industrial site as by the fact that the area is an archeological excavation site. The study trail features three look-outs, rest areas and look-out platforms built right on the lakeshore. All these come to form a complex visual history reaching far beyond the aims of education and learning.
