Traditional female costume of Kupusina is unique with the characteristics of the costume from Kalocsa in Hungary. The costume consists of: a starchy short-sleeved white blouse, a red waistcoat, a bell-shaped skirt and a silk apron. The skirt is specific, consisting of six parts: two lower narrow skirts with laces, followed by three starchy pleated skirts and upper skirt made of cashmere. The colour of the upper skirt depends on a woman's age, so young women wear red, green or dark red, older women wear navy blue skirts, whereas women over 70 years of age wear black cashmere skirts. The richer a family is, the more skirts women have. A silk apron is tied over the skirt and young women wear it in lilac or blue, and older women wear darker shades. On their heads, girls wear bukor tie, consisting of 7-9 tied silk tapes, but never containing a yellow tape. Yellow colour is not present in the costume at all, even jewelry must not be yellow. Earlier, married women wore a hat called fićula, because it was traditional for women not to show their hair. Married women also wore pearls around their necks until their first child was born. All women wore black shoes. Today, national costumes are worn only by women over 60-65 years of age, but women of all ages wear it at a wedding. Men have not worn national costumes even at weddings since 1920s and 1930s. Museum area covers three premises in the village centre, symbolically representing rooms in an old colonial house. In the clean (a young woman's) room, one can see an outstanding painted furniture with traditional Hungarian as well as renaissance decorations in the famous Kupusina blue colour. Visitors can even peek into a young woman's trunk (dating back to 1817) and see what was part of a young woman's dowry chest. In the second room, there is an outstanding example of a built-up village stove, and in the third, there is furniture with kitchenware. During their visit to this community, tourists might be welcomed by a famous Kupusina poppy strudel, made according to a specific recipe, well-kept by several families in Kupusina.
