The visitors to the Kisvárda Rétközi Museum in a real fairy tale world. The ethnographic exhibition the title of which is "Round the bottom of my skirt ..." is held in an old village and enchant them with its beauty. The rural terrain interior is constructed on a 8 x 2-meter table and is an interesting and attractive spectacle, not only for children but also for adults.

And what is it that yo can see in this Lilliput-size village?? A church with belfry, thatched cottage with a well sweep, houses lined along a dirt road, a slow ox-pulled wagon,, hut keeper with a haystack, a river meandering through flowering meadow, and, above all, dolls dressed in 20th century costumes. The visitors will find children playing in old-style dresses, as well as peasants in baggy pants whetting their scythe -canvas-clad shepherd children, street market a girl from the Nyírség going to the market in a dress she just put on to go their, as well as celebrating girls, lads going to their churches. In addition to the loose-skirt folk costumes from Geszteréd, Épatak, Bökön Bashalom an interesting contrast is created by the urban Kisvárda resident baby girl dresed in festive clothing and the civilian dressed Tirpák girl.

A new feature of the exhibition is that it precisely shows folk clothings of former Szabolcs County long gone, however, were reconstructed using ethnographic and archival photos, thus preserving them for posterity. Another new feature is that the dolls are not on display in showcases, behind glasses, but in realistic, yet fabulous atmosphere environment. reflecting the life of peasants. Therefore, the exhibition in addition to providing an authentic image of our great-grandmothers' clothing and way of life, also provides lasting memories for the visitors. Kisvárda now has a new sight inviting people to see, not only local people and those living in the region, but also visitors from further away.
