In Iža you can find Kelemantia Roman and Ethnographic Museum, which was opened in 2013. The museum was created as part of the project "Connecting to an international tourist route: In the footsteps of Romans on the Danube".
There are two expositions in the museum: Roman and ethnographic.
The marble plaque placed on the wall of the building was offered by the village in memory of János Tóth-Kurucz, who was born in Iža. He began the excavations in Kelemantia dates back to the beginning of the last century. The Roman exhibition also presents a slice of his work, with original manuscripts and personal items. The Danube Museum has been very helpful in compiling the exhibition, and many objects come from its collection. In addition to utility and liturgical objects, the ethnographic exhibition also presents the history of the local embroidery industry, which spread from the neighboring Chotín to Iža in the late 19th century. Visitors can admire eye-catching pieces made with intricate embroidery and azure.
A craft workshop was built at the back of the building where they could show, how the Romans lived and created. The building also hosts children's camps and Roman camps in the summer.
