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.
