You'll also learn about Tesla's cooperation with the United States' corporate giants. Browse through thousands of related photographs, written records, and drawings that depict Tesla's carrier.

  • Nikola Tesla was a fascinating inventor. This museum is home to a number of Tesla's inventions and a long list of patents (and, his urn!). The tour includes several 'live' exhibitions of electrical...  more »
  • Small, crowded, with the main event being the 15 min film about Tesla. There are experiments and although interesting, there's only 3 of them. They do have Tesla's ashes in the museum. The tickets...  more »

  • It is a very small museum. If you want to have an English guided tour, you need to pay 500 dinars per person. They start with an introduction video about Tesla which takes nearly 15 minutes. The volume is too high for the small room. Then, they introduce some of Tesla's patents with the help of experiments. It is very informative, but the museum is very small and there is nothing else. You may want to visit if you have time.
  • Make sure you catch the guided tour at the top of each hour - you’ll watch a video about Nikola Tesla and then see a few neat demonstrations. I had to line up for about 45 minutes to get into the museum, and be aware that they only take local currency (no euros and no cards). Overall, I liked the museum but found it to be really crowded - in the future they might need to start taking online reservations.
  • Loved it!!!! A great place where you can find interesting stories about Tesla, his discoveries and inventions which are used even today in a lot of products (hair dryer, refrigerator). You can also see how the inventions work, they are awesome!!!! You cannot pay by card, so make sure you have cash (500 dinars/ticket in November 2019)
  • To see the museum, you must wait at the designated time for the tour in the language of your choice (I believe English and Serbian are the only two options). The tour guide, although knowledgeable, seemed very rushed and it was not personable or fun in the beginning. The small experiments she showed were interesting, however. We were lucky and were a smaller group (~25 people) and even that seemed like too many people inside the tiny museum, especially for watching the experiments. There's no washroom or no coat rack available. Entry fee is cash only, 5 dinars.
  • Pretty small museum dedicated to Tesla himself and his inventions. At the beginning of tour you have to watch 15 minutes movie about Tesla's life. For me there were nothing new, but common facts. After the movie, you will see three Tesla coils in action and if you're lucky you can touch lightnings produced by baby coil.
