  • 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.
