Nikola Tesla Museum
Belgrade, Krunska 51,
Located in the centre of Belgrade, in a residential villa built in 1927, after the project of Serbian architect Dragisa Brasovan. The villa served different purposes, until 5. December 1952, when Nikola Tesla Museum was founded. Material for the museum came from the United States, after a decision of the American judiciary, as Sava Kosanovic, Tesla’s nephew, was declared to be Tesla’s inheritor. Fulfilling Tesla’s wish, Mr. Sava Kosanovic brought all Tesla’s documentation and personal belongings to Belgrade in 1949. This museum is a unique institution of science and culture in Serbia, but also in the world. It is the only museum that takes care of the original and personal heritage of Tesla. Exceptional colections are part of the museum. Tesla’s posthumous ashes are also kept in the museum.
