    It is interesting for physics lovers (I am not hehe). The guided tour starts with a short movie explaining the life of Tesla, then we move to a series of experiments about electrical inventions he created them, it is funny. You will be lucky if you come just before the tour starts, otherwise you have to wait outside a bit.

    Hesitant to advice
    We went there with child at 2 so she was scared of experiments. Museum is very small and poor about objects. Guide gave overall info in 5minutes and you are on your on. We bought personel guide with 800rsd and visited with 30 40 people which some hearing and seeing problems.

    The best part was the demonstration of Tesla’s various different inventions! Audience can participate and the staff is very knowledgeable. I was lucky with my timing and the next group just started when I arrived, so I got the free guided experience organized by the museum staff, whom spoke perfect English. Kid or adult, if you’re into gadgets, science and history, this one is a must!

    Interesting place :)
    The museum was great. We had a guided tour including a video with facts, a guy who explained us a lot of things and some “practices” :) The negative part of the experience was the waiting time (more than 30 min) but it’s also because of the guided tours so at the end - it’s “expected”. Keep in mind that you can pay only cash and in their currency

    Worth it
    Not a huge place, but has the ashes of the man who created power as it is today. Nikola tesla. Dope. Standing in front of it was better than the top of a mountain. Heads up tours are booked and start every hour, half hour early (60 person max)

    Crowded; my Tablet got Zapped!
    I visited the Museum with a tour group. It’s a small space and we had to wait in line to enter for 20 minutes or so. Intro video was 15 minutes and a demonstration on the stage took another 10. There were about 50 of us- very crowded. When they started demonstrations of the larger generators they asked about pacemakers and told us we’d be conducting electricity through our bodies. They handed out tubular light bulbs to many people and they lit up! Unfortunately, my tablet computer was in my backpack on the floor and after that half the display was black. So far nothing has fixed it (this was just yesterday). Phone is OK, thank heaven. So, beware of the currents! I wish I knew more about the extensive display of electrical apparati but I didn’t. Exhibits of his personal items and the orb containing his remains interesting.

    Interesting tour but very rushed
    I hope the below info will be helpful for anyone. Firstly, it's cash only, as mentioned previously. Secondly, the only way to reduce the wait in a queue to a minimal is to come in about 30 min before opening. All tours are guided and they let certain number of visitors in to form a group. Coming that early will most likely guarantee you to be in the first group. Each tour for one group lasts exactly 30 min. And the last but not least, as the tours are organised this particular way, there is no time dedicated for self-browsing - almost no photo or proper shopping opportunity. Our guide did a good job - no boring dates, all the information and facts were straight to a point and entertaining to listen to, although the whole pace made me feeling very rushed.

    Needs few improvements
    I couldn't wait to visit this museum and be able to hear as many details possible regarding Tesla. Unfortunately my expectations was too high. I would suggest to invest a little bit more in the sound when guide is speaking to each group as we couldn't hear anything. Inventions was really nice to see on live.

    Not so interesting
    We went there and was a big line, so we waited for around 35min. They do "guided" tours hourly- 60 persons at a time. The space inside its small. But the tour basically consists on sitting us all on a room to watch a 20min video about tesla and after that we move to another small room where a demonstration is made on two of tesla machines. We expected better honestly. Also note that the price doubles if u want your " tour " in English instead of serbian

We waited for an English speaking tour for more than an hour only to enter small space with 60 other visitors. We were looking forward to experiencing some of Tesla’s famous experiments however we could not see anything due to overcrowding.
Usual tour, I understand lasts an hour however due to big demand over holidays, tours were cut to 30 minutes - even though the price of tickets stayed the same!
When we asked for some of experiments to be shown again for us as we could not see them, we were told that we should not have visited this museum during holidays😳😳😳
Silly things to say to the room full of tourists visiting Belgrade for Christmas and NY...

Waited for 30 min outside because of the crowd. Than finnaly tour started and the room was full of visitors and we couldnt see anything.. there are just 3 small rooms in whole museum.. the exepriments cant be done by yourself.. tesla generator is nothing special, small lightning. Definately not worth waiting and paying 500 rsd/person, especially ot there is lot of people in the line..

A disappointment! Too pricey (800 rsd/person) for 15 minutes film and 15 minutes demonstration of Tesla’s inventions. Huge crowd (around 20 people) in two very small rooms. Though the tickets description on the web site says that the price is for a “private” tour in English of less than 10 people. Certainly no COVID-19 protection in this crowd and no chance to see the experiments.
No toilet.
The museum does not accept credit cards (in what century do they live?!)
I was also surprised to learn that Tesla only visited Belgrade once in his life. So no reason actually for the museum to be there, it would probably make more sense to open it in Chicago or in Graz (maybe there are, haven’t visited yet). By the way, the technical museum in Zagreb has much better Tesla demonstration cabinet!

Nice small museum worth it to visit if you are interested in culture and history. The museum has a short introductory movie about Nikola Tesla,for the price of 800 dinars per adult you get a tour with tourist guide she was excellent. You can experience and play with electricity that was the best part . The museum also has some personal items of Nikola Tesla and his ashes.
If you are Serbian you pay 400 dinars per adult and 200 dinars for children.

Nikola Tesla Museum is a museum located in Belgrade, the main city in Serbia. The museum is dedicated to Nikola Tesla, a well-known scientist due to their discoveries in alternating current. Here, you can learn a lot about his life, their discoveries and the objects, which Nikola Tesla used in his life. Pitifully, the museum is too small, and you spent about 20minutes seeing a video. However after the video you can see and participate in real experiments of alternating current: the best part of the museum!

It is the memorial museum of Tesla and you will see his ashes. Apart from that you will find English tour guide almost every one hour with a ticket of 800 rsd (7€) per person. There are many Tesla's experiments in which the public take part! You must visit it BUT remember they do not accept Euros or credit card, this means only RSD and cash

The museum is very small and the personal very unfriendly. They accept only cash and serbian dinars only. You basically pay just to be shown a movie of 15 minutes.
They don’t have any toilets! As we asked if we could use the toilet they told us „No, we don’t have any toilets“ in a very unfriendly way. Not recommended at all. You find better documentaries of Nikola Tesla on Youtube.

First of all the actual museum is 3 rooms at best.

Most of the visit is comprised by a video that has bad sound quality and the subtitles are not in English ( language is English though). Also not everyone can see.

I went with my gf and she did not physics knowledge, she barely understood anything. Some flashes and bangs here and there.

In comparison to other museums it is expensive and they DO NOT accept cards (stuck in the 20th century I guess).

We got lucky because you can only visit when the tours start and the group was almost full when we joined. As far as I understand there is no way to book in advance and they were waiting in the sun and heat.

Not recommended, ho to the national museum instead.

We got lucky because

Although i was anticipating my visit to this unique museum the overall experience wasn't as great.
Visited early morning after consulted their website for price and availability and when we got there they told us is full with groups for next 2 hours and we cannot visit it individually but with an 'organised' group (of course the time they chose and more expensive).
After us some other foreign visitors had issues as were told differently last day and when finally entered they start with a simple video for the life of the great Nikola Tesla which was subbed in turkish and the audio quality was aweful.
Nice but small exhibition with a talented young lady guide (exception from the rest of the bad staff).

You can not buy tickets in advance. Limited entry per hour, only 60 persons, you have to be on the line at least 30min earlier. There is no control, some jerks skip the line and staff does not do anything. Cash only entry, no cards.

Then when you finally get in... The place is very small, only one floor. The guide was speaking like a robot. Couple of nice technical experiments, but that's about it. Not much to see, some items has earlier been interactive but now you can't touch them.

Not really worth of effort and long waiting. We were lucky to get in, not a busy day.
