About Nikola Tesla Museum, Belgrade
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, Belgrade Reviews
Manage your expectation right. The museum is SMAILL, however it is full of sense. First, you see Tesla’s original belongings, including the legendary safe from room 3327 where he spent his last days. His ashes are also there in a special section. Second, you can see and be a part of demonstrations, performed by an excellent guide. This is included in the ticket price (adult - 500 dinar, CASH ONLY). Third, you see original machines!! Made by Tesla himself!! I was first disappointed with the museum size, but then realized that I didn’t want to leave...
Last Friday Chartwell Primary students were treated to a special visit to the Tesla museum. We were given a private tour by the curator and shown an excellent 15 minute documentary on the life of the great inventor. The visit to the museum was extremely inspiring and everyone came away from it with a much deeper appreciation for the life and work of Nikola Tesla.
I came here on a Sunday, a few hours before my plane was due to bring me back home, and wanted to visit the museum. Since it was my last day had no more dinar in cash. They don't accept payment neither by card nor in Euro. In the most famous, flagship museum of the country this is very bad and this mentality definitely not helps the development of the tourism in Serbia.
Fantastic museum with many inventions (most of them are copies from the originals) of Nikola Tesla. It may be small but their presentation is more than enough. Unique experience learning a lot about one of the most important scientists in the history of humanity.
Not only you can see the exhibits, they also have guide, who explains really well, you can ask anything to the guide, they speak really good English. The guide tour time is limited, so you’d better check before visiting.
