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
We didn't have time to walk over the whole place because of our flight but managed to watch a major part of a presentation of Tesla's first and most famous inventions. It was fun. But I cannot rate all the expositions because I couldn't see them.
Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Young people. Small but refined selection of exhibit items. Short but concise, meaningful and fun tours. One of the artefacts is the urn wit Nikola Tesla remains, which makes this museum unique. Altough there are a lot of parking lots in the area, most of the time all are taken. Suggested is to reach this museum by public transport or by a cab. However further up or down the street, and in the area, between 5 and 10 minutes walk away, bars and cafes are nested, offering some refreshment and enjoyable leisure time.
Small, expensive, pointless. A short movie tries to bring up the personality of Tesla with little success, followed mainly by a demonstration with electric discharges and neon tubes. No attempt is ever done to explain the technical aspects of his work. Visual arts would be a good way to do that, as AC and magnetism are waves that could be visualized and explained to most people through visualization. For some reason Mr. Tesla decided to be brought in Belgrade after his death, and that is why this museum exists. Any electrical engineering faculty in the world has more passionate people willing to tell you who Tesla really was, just get them!
Definitely go on the guided tour instead just looking at the exhibition of Tesla's personal belongings collected in the museum. The tour starts with an informative short film on Tesla, followed by a short tour with demonstrations of some of the machines. The tour guide (for English tours at least) is really good, fun to listen to and obviously interested in the topic he's talking about. After the tour the small exhibition seems much more interesting.
A must see. Informative tour (also available in English daily between 14:00 and 19:00). They have several working original inventions on show which are actually used. Simply amazing!
