In Jászberény, former chief town of the Jazygian - Cumanian District, arose the idea - among the first in the country - to establish a museum. Deputy mayor, Orban Sipos stressed the significance of the idea to place the Jazygian relics in a worthy place, so the succeeding generations may look back upon their history. The museum of the Jazygians, which had been placed in one of the Town Hall's courtyard buildings, opened its gates to the public on 24th December 1874. continue
Permanent exhibitions
A taste of the exhibition
Our present knowledge suggests that the horn was made in Byzantium around the 10th - 11th century. The richly ornamented ivory horn was originally used during Byzantine circuses. The artistic valne of the sophisticated carve work on the surface supports this fact. Under what conditions or how the horn got to Jászberény we do not know for sure. continue
A taste of the exhibition
Many students of Jászberény joined the Explorers Association of Hungary. The association organized an exhibition in the Children's House in 1993 which remembered the children heroes among whom many came from Jászberény. Orbán Sipos who later founded the museum joined the red hats when he was 14. continue
