It is now undeniably known around the world that Nikola Tesla was the greatest inventor who ever lived. Without his work on electricity, magnetism and radio, the technological progress of the 20th century would never have happened. But tragically, his success was overshadowed throughout the last century by the success of Thomas Edison, even though Tesla was by far his scientific and innovative superior.
This museum, then, has only one goal – to exhibit the full depth and breadth of Tesla’s legacy. It has about 160000 documents that belonged to Tesla; his personal library of books and newspapers; interactive exhibits on his discoveries and their subsequent impact; collections of personal objects; and most strikingly, an urn that contains Tesla’s ashes.

Nikola Tesla Museum Reviews & Ratings
Very cool museum. Interactive. If you are looking to do it in English make sure to double check the times for guided English tours. They have a very informative 15 minute video at the start. Then the guide will show you all the cool Tesla cooks and engines. Won’t take longer than an hour. Really worth checking out if you are in the city.
A must see when in Belgrade! Nikola Tesla museum is a perfect place to get more familiar with both professional and personal life of one of the biggest scientists and inventors of our World! Be sure to follow the guided tours (there are both in Serbian and English) as guides are professional and full of exceptional stories that will make your visit unforgettable! Strongly recommend!
Really good museum, very interesting and has historical events linked to it , so I really liked it here , and I recommend to anyone who comes to Belgrad to also visit this museum. You will also enjoy an amazing movie about Nikola Tesla's history and to how he made the world what it is today , so why not? Why not visit this wonderful museum?
In my opinion it is the Best place I visited in Belgrade. It is so inspiring to hear the story of one of the greatest scientists. I was amazed by the experiment with the lightning. There are a lot of his personal items there and some of his inventions and most importantly they have Tesla himself (his ashes). I totally recommend it. If you want to go there check first the schedule of the museum(there are Serbian and English tours) and go 20 minutes before the tour in order to get a ticket because you can not book beforehand.
From the outside it looks like a small house and you begin to wonder whether this is a tourist trap. But once you enter and pay the minimal fee, its a place of some serious facts, knowledge and great history. The ticket is also your tour for the time. I honestly havent paid that much attention in months. It was really interesting and at some parts of the tour you get hands on, which really spices the experience up. Our tour guide was fantastic, she was very knowledgeable and was very clear and easy to understand. Definitely worth buying some of the souvenirs at the end, you wont find them anywhere else!
