In the heyday of Art Nouveau, many outstanding works of architecture were created by the architect and designer Rezső Vilmos Ray, including the Water Tower on Margaret Island. It was completed in 1911 – the architect successfully achieved the dual function, so the structure could be operated both as a water tower and a lookout tower. In 1977 it was declared a monument of urban significance. Every year, the Water Tower on Margaret Island hosts special exhibitions and galleries and offers young artists the opportunity to present their artworks.

During the summer, the following exhibitions can be seen in the Water Tower:
