Nikola Tesla Museum - Review
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
Fantastic Memorial museum to visit. An interesting overview of Nikola Tesla's life, his experiments and achievements. Wonderful demonstrations of some of his inventions, and a lot more original material and examples than we thought would be here. Also includes a room of his personal effects and another with his ashes. Definitely recommend trying to reserve your ticket ahead of time if possible, and showing up early to ensure you get in for the tour.
The staff were making larger groups of around 60 persons. First there is a movie presented of around 15 minutes in which if you were into the last 20 persons who bought the ticket you'll not be able to see anything. Then there are presented some electric motors but again, you can't see them and it keeps continuing like this with the rest of the presentation. I've seen photos from other times when people had fun and they could really get a feel about what's going on there but they were maximum 30 people in a group.
The Nikola Tesla Museum is worth the visit although I admit I wish the size of the building was doubled. We attempted and finally got in on our third try due to the crowds and sold out entrance times. We spent about an hour in the museum and enjoyed the short film and demonstrations offered by the staff. A must see especially for USA folks, since who Tesla was and his contributions were not taught about in our school systems.
Nikola Tesla has always been one of my hero's! The tiny museum is well worth the money, around 5 dollars I believe. You learn so much and you actually get to seem some of his working creations. Whats interesting is Nikola Tesla actually only spent 3 days in Serbia. I had a blast! I will say that the museum is tiny does get crowded. But if you love history and you love Nikola Tesla's story, then this is the place for you!
Great small museum to showcase a bit of knowledge on Nikola Tesla. It's also his resting place which made it a bit more surreal. There are tours in Serbian and English which we found out once we got to the museum. They are at different times so call in advance to find out when they are. I would suggest arrive 15min earlier before the tour begins as it fills fairly quick. It's a very small tour/museum and the guide was very easy to understand and knew a lot about Tesla himself. A tip is once you finish the video presentation get to the front of the next presentation to show how the electric current work. You'll get a chance to hold a light rod and see how it all works. Highly recommened.
