  • We wandered in this museum for minimum 2 hours and even came back for the Tesla experiment! Which is totally worth it! Although the man who did the experiment did no speak English and didn't even ask ...  more »
  • Definitely off the beaten path, the Nikola Tesla Technical Museum makes for a great alternative to the myriad of art & culture museums in Zagreb. Engineering geeks would particularly enjoy this museum...  more »

  • Fascinating place for both kids and adults. Plenty of old-school machine innards and vehicles to look at. The trip down the mine is fun, but taller people will end up with a bad back! There is a great interactive exhibition with a Faraday cage, whereby volunteers (kids) can go up front and stand in a cage while electricity rubs through it. Sound dangerous? Nope! It's really good fun for them. I'd never been in a planetarium before, but they have one here. It's probably half an hour long or so that you sit in it, but I found it a bit tedious. Kids must qualify as nerds to patiently participate! Just bear in mind that, although the museum staff can speak in English, everything is presented in Croatian, so you have to use your imagination a bit!
  • Great little museum with enthusiastic staff and a chance to see Tesla coils fired up!
  • Very nice museum, not big, but you should wait for guided tours. In that case you can see Tesla transformator or go inside mine.
  • Defintitely a great Museum to experience tech (r)evolution of the last century: Cars, Trains, Airplanes and Submarines, Spacecrafts, and a lot more: Oil Rigs, Mining, Agriculture, Cemistry,... A good lession of physics, Engineering, and of course: Mr. Tesla. That's science, B****! ;-) It could have a bit more descriptions in english or deutsch, though - But great for kids too!
  • we visited the planetarium it was worth to see all the stars but to go to travel you have to pass through the Museum, all in all worth it!
