In 1976, the Museum of Ethnography opened an exhibition entitled Hidden Treasures < / em > of the most important pieces of the Kun Zsigmond collection. Gyula Ortutay, the ethnographer, began finding a permanent exhibition opportunity supported by the profession and finally did so with the couple Kun. Under a contract with the III. District, the then 687 -piece collection of folk art was relocated into the XVIII. century listed building available in the Main Square of Óbuda which served as the home of Kun couple between 1976-78. Due to the deterioration in their health made it impossible for the couple to, welcome visitors themselves, but contributed to the continuing development of the collection.with additional donations.

 

In 1996, the III. District Local History Collection separated from the community house and continued as an independent institution. It was listed as Óbuda Museum and Affiliate Kun Zsigmond Home Museum Folk Art Museum Art Collection by the Ministry of Culture.

 

Zsigmond Kun died on 2 January 2000, When he died, the collection consisted of nearly 1,100 items. The exhibition in Óbuda saw several renovations and arrangement of the material. In July 2010, the legacy of Zsigmond Kun was relocated to his hometown , , Mezőtúr. Currently the collection is open to see at the Túri Fazekas Museum.
