Nikola Tesla

The man who lit up the world

“Let the future tell the truth, and evaluate each one according to his work and accomplishments. The present is theirs, but the future, for which I have really worked, is mine.” – Nikola Tesla

The Nikola Tesla Museum in Belgrade was opened to the public on October 20, 1955 and it was the first technical museum in Yugoslavia. On this occasion, a permanent setting of exhibition was presented to the visitors where they could observe as faithfully as possible made models according to Tesla’s designs. One of the models, perhaps the most famous, shows the effect of a reversible magnetic field. Visitors could also see first Tesla induction motors, a model of hydroelectric power plant that illustrates Tesla’s multiphase portable system of electricity, various generators, transformers and remote controlled ship models.

We can consider year 1957 as the initial year of the starting activities of the Nikola Tesla Museum, because ash pot of Nikola Tesla was brought to the museum and a permanent setting of exhibition was completed.
