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 - Write a Review
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.
Might be disappointing for people who expect fireworks and lightnings. The museum is located on one floor with 4 rooms. It is best to enroll to a guided tour, you will watch a short movie about Tesla and have the opportunity to watch how some of his inventions work. It is definitely worth visiting! There could be more of his notes to have a look at, though.
We truly enjoyed our visit here. It is a very small museum and does not require a large time commitment. It contains mainly personal artifacts and ashes of Tesla. The demonstrations of his coil were cool, and we enjoyed it like little kids (Kids would love this btw).
It's a small museum but it worth a try. You can watch a movie about Nikola Tesla's life and then listen the interactive presentation of a cute girl that refers to the electrical current as ''her'' and ''she''. You also get to see some live demonstrations of some of his inventions. However these are only replicas, the real ones being found in the second aisle.
