  • It's a very cool thing to be able to be inside the childhood home of such a talented inventor. This place does not disappoint. It is extremely informative and has a great timeline through Tesla's life...  more »
  • I know a lot about the head work but there are only two effective demonstrations of his inventions: the giant coil that lights the neon through the body of those who hold them in their hands and the egg-rotor that rises and turns due to the rotating magnetic field. Besides this I found very interesting panels that tell in detail the life of Tesla and especially the "drawers" that hide anecdotes and curiosities on the (sometimes) extravagant personality of man more than the inventor. If you go in the area still worth a visit.

  • This is the place where Nikola was born, you can feel how happy he was growing up in the nature. The statue of Nikola was very tall, felt taller than 2m. Not sure if it is 1-1. In the memorial center ...  more »

  • Nice to see Tesla's birthplace commemorated and kept up. Some of the exhibits are nice and inspiring but others (technical) just don't work. Also, the price is somewhat high for what is presented to the visitor.
  • Interesting to visit his birth place. Best to visit on a quiet day as the centre is only small. Could do with more displays of his inventions.
  • Very interesting and a cool concept. Tesla's home is a small museum, and there is a replica of his lab, where you can participate in an experiment with wireless electricity. There is also a small movie theatre where you can watch a documentary about Tesla. The souvenirs in the gift shop are very uninspired though.
  • Must see, this home place of the worlds biggest inventor and most brilliant mind brings out very strong feelings, must visit!
  • The place is quiet, clean and spacious. The house is something special! Something words can not be described! You have to experience it!!! The character and work of a great man you can feel! Actually, it is still small today to me, though it is all available, incomprehensible as it did in its time! Fascination is a weak word for what I felt and experienced there! Employees are very kind and helpful. This is the place you really need to visit if you are in croatia!!!!
