A section of the park with an old traditional countryside house situated in the farm yard of the complex, will present the countryside-like construction style along with some objects of rural culture. Taking example from open-air museums, objects typical to rural households in Vojvodina would be on display, including the interior. In cooperation with the Provincial Institute for the Protection of Cultural Monuments, a grain barn from 1847 was transferred from Stapar and placed in the park. The building was constructed from good quality timber, richly carved and well preserved.

Once the reconstruction is completed, a Serbian and a Slovak room will be furnished in the ethnic cottage to illustrate rural dwelling style. Serbs and Slovaks are two Slavic nations close to each other, living in Kulpin for centuries. Beside their language, they enriched this region with a whole range of cultural characteristics, reflecting the way they dressed, reflecting their customs, housing, food, etc.

This is the section of the museum compound where the authors intend to revoke the revival of some old crafts and manufacture craftsmanship. At the museum souvenir shop, such products will be offered to visitors. In co-operation with some local associations and the Municipal Tourist Agency, the Museum has introduced several cultural and tourist events, such as for example: The Festival of Wine and Home Made Sausages, Traditional Wedding Party, Slovak Feasts, Bread Festival, Art Colony and others. By this as well as by a wide range of programs organized jointly with the local municipality, the Agricultural Museum in Kulpin is right on its way to transform into a modern eco-museum.
