“Nikola Tesla” Memorial Centre, Smiljan

Nikola Tesla, scientist and inventor in the field of electricity, was born and spent his youth there. The modern museum, housed in his birthplace, and the nearby theme park preserve the memories of Tesla’s scientific path.

The life path and the genius of this great inventor are introduced here by picture, word and sound. With the help of modern technology visitors can travel through Tesla`s life and the time he lived in. Tesla`s turbine engine is exhibited in the stream that runs through the house and between the two platforms floats the miniature of the robotized boat as an example of remote controlling by radio waves. More than 900 of Tesla`s inventions are presented here in a very interesting way.
