The exhibition that can be visited until the end of August is to guide the visitors through the life of the order and show pictures of ornamented garments of the grand masters from the foundation in 1764 until the present day.

The award was founded by the Hungarian queen Maria Theresa, the Austrian Archduchess during the two-day ceremony, on 5-6 May 1764. The order restarted in 2011, when it was re-established under the name the Hungarian Order of St. Stephen. The slogan of the order founded 250 years ago was: "Publicum meritorum Praemium", that is, merit gained in the service of the public, the historical tradition and timeless message of which binds us as well.

The exhibition holds a mirror to patrons and recipients of two and a half centuries. The history of the award presents a diverse story in the history of Hungary. The exhibition is to present the intentions and goals, as well as the complex system of valuesand criteria. The visitors may review the history of the recognition mainly presented to Hungarian rulers the majority of which came from the Habsburg dynasty from the beginning upt o the 21st century.

A number of foreign museums and private collections provided material fro us to be shown at the exhibition. Those interested will see medals, paintings, coins, prints, documents, photographs and weapons, including Maria Theresa's own jewelled medal with insignia from the National Museum's collection, Bismarck diamond ornamented medal from Germany, the ornamental outfit of the order that arrived from Vienna and also the medal Ferdinand IV Bulgarian king . received from Charles.
