A MUN file is a compressed file that contains Windows system resources, including the icons used by a system-level Windows program. Most MUN files are found in the C:/Windows/SystemResources directory, though some are found in application-specific directories. Typically, MUN files have filenames that end in .exe.mun or .dll.mun.

If you are simply looking to access and save a copy of the icons stored within a MUN file, you can use Nirsoft IconsExtract to extract MUN icons and save them as .ICO files. To do so, open IconsExtract, select File → Search for Icons, and then browse to and search the C:/Windows/SystemResources directory.

If you want to explore all the files contained within a MUN archive, you can open and explore the archive with 7-Zip. Note, however, that you cannot use 7-Zip to automatically extract the files contained within a MUN archive. You can, however, use it to manually copy the files contained within a MUN file to a new folder.
