  • They do not have a bathroom. So we had to start our visit with going to a cafe down the street. The museum is cute and has sharm, worth a visit, just pee first.  more »
  • If you are in Belgrade, do not miss to visit Nikola Tesla museum. There is so many exhibits over there.  more »
  • After a long walk again is in the to-do list when we went to this museum we're not satisfied 2-3-storey mansion-like building:((entrance on the right and on the left they turned in a museum the remaining rooms supposedly.. ticket askance that when searching for the rooms we saw already half-ass:)), but after receiving the ticket guy ' just upstairs there's these two rooms we had the shock ":)), this museum also mainly in rooms called Tesla's writings about his life and there were the photos. In short, I think it's a shame your time in beautiful again in Belgrade was an activity that ... near St. Mark's Church and square of the main area of the Museum with the rest of the Slavija square in the regions of wandering down a bit and hang out it can be much more enjoyable to see the Museum I..

  • We didn't have time to walk over the whole place because of our flight but managed to watch a major part of a presentation of Tesla's first and most famous inventions. It was fun. But I cannot rate all the expositions because I couldn't see them.
  • Small, expensive, pointless. A short movie tries to bring up the personality of Tesla with little success, followed mainly by a demonstration with electric discharges and neon tubes. No attempt is ever done to explain the technical aspects of his work. Visual arts would be a good way to do that, as AC and magnetism are waves that could be visualized and explained to most people through visualization. For some reason Mr. Tesla decided to be brought in Belgrade after his death, and that is why this museum exists. Any electrical engineering faculty in the world has more passionate people willing to tell you who Tesla really was, just get them!
  • A must see. Informative tour (also available in English daily between 14:00 and 19:00). They have several working original inventions on show which are actually used. Simply amazing!
  • Definitely go on the guided tour instead just looking at the exhibition of Tesla's personal belongings collected in the museum. The tour starts with an informative short film on Tesla, followed by a short tour with demonstrations of some of the machines. The tour guide (for English tours at least) is really good, fun to listen to and obviously interested in the topic he's talking about. After the tour the small exhibition seems much more interesting.
  • Might be disappointing for people who expect fireworks and lightnings. The museum is located on one floor with 4 rooms. It is best to enroll to a guided tour, you will watch a short movie about Tesla and have the opportunity to watch how some of his inventions work. It is definitely worth visiting! There could be more of his notes to have a look at, though.
