Following a section that discusses how folk nativity sets are preserved and displayed, the exhibition present a handful of specific examples demonstrating both how the custom has changed over time, and how it lives on and is sustained today.
Lastly, a number of examples originating in different times and places are used to underscore the many ways in which the nativity scene itself has served as an object of religious devotion both in Hungary and abroad.
