This one-storied historical building was built in 1842 and was used in 1870 as a military depot and then later as a tax office. The city library was also located in this building. Since 1931 it has been a museum with one of the country's oldest official collections. Here, visitors will see the symbol of the Jász people, and our esteemed national treasure, the horn of Lehel. The Jazygian Museum won in 1999 the titel of 'The Museum of the year". Exhibitions: Life on the land of Jazygians, Child heroes of the Hungarian War of Independence (1848/49), Embroidery of Jazygians in 21st century.
