  • We saw the sign on the toll road but we missed the exit. We were able to work it into on itinerary the next day and it was worth it. We thought we would spend 30 minutes but we were there 90 mins at.....  more »
  • Well organised, high quality content, a lot of different souvenirs to choose from, and the most important you are visiting birth place of the greatest man that ever lived <3  more »
  • Sadly, we were denied entry because they wouldn’t take a credit card and we didn’t have the cash needed. Given that Tesla said his life’s work was driven to make life a little easier for humanity, I wonder what he would have to say to the people who run this museum? I think it’s ironic that his inventions helped contribute to the credit card machines that they choose not to use at the very place of his birth.
  • Very small. 4 - 5 experiments. The Tesla coil runs every 2 hours. I expected a science museum..... It's more a historical village. If you are interested in science, don't loose your time.
