  • Although it is a very small museum, it was definitely well worth it. It’s refreshing to go to a museum where you aren’t there for hours as it gives you the ability to see the rest of Belgrade during.....  more »

  • It was a very pleasant experience, the price is affordable, the staff is friendly and they give you information about the inventions and demonstrate experiments which you can participate. The museum is small but I think it is enough to understand what a great mind he was. I recommend you to read something about him and his life before visiting here, it might make your visit more enjoyable. Also, we went there in the morning and didn’t wait at all.
  • This is s tiny museum and as it's stuck a specialist collection it's best to take the short tour to get the best reward. The guide demonstrates the various motors and encourages you to take part in the experiments to see how they work; so you can have a go at conducting electricity and watching the tube in your hands light up as it passes through your skin!
  • The museum is a bit small. In a beautiful building. With the ticket you get to see a film about Tesla life and a guided tour by a very friendly and informative guide that shows you through some basic Tesla coils experiments, which most of the people will find amazing. The guide helped us having a wonderful "popular science" experience.
  • Nikola Tesla is one of the most important scientist throughout history, this museum is not... Very large group and it was not possible to see what the (well spoken) guide was pointing at or demonstrating. There are very few items on display and after the demonstrations you are allowed to walk around on your own, you will cover it all in five minutes (I did two laps in ten...). Staff spoke very good English and was very polite and friendly.
  • Definitely an authentic and interesting experience! We decided to go even before we were in Belgrade, and I must say that I am really glad. The guided tour was great, guide speaks English pretty well. The tour itself was interactive, you can get a chance to feel electricity running through Tesla's coils if you choose to volunteer :) I absolutely recommend seeing this museum!
