Nikola Tesla, a top inventor, scientist and humanist, was born in 1856 in Smiljan near Gospić.
Visit a multimedia exhibition in Tesla's birth house that witnesses events in his life and contemporaneous world events. Photos, very interesting Tesla's quotes and sounds remind us of Tesla's childhood in Smiljan.
Take this unique opportunity to visit Tesla's birth house - Memorial Center "Nikola Tesla". You will learn a lot about Tesla and be inspired by his life, inventions and thoughts.
The ceiling of Tesla's birth house is dedicated to Tesla's inventions and through the multimedia exhibition we feel that we are with Tesla in his lab. Here you can experience some of Tesla's many inventions, such as alternating current, electric motors, and Tesla transformers.
Tesla was primarily a humanist and, all his scientific research was primarily focused on the prosperity and progress of humanity, rather than profit. In his focus was the free flow of information and energy available to every man.
At the nearby stream, there is a demonstration of Tesla's turbine as a watermill. In a diminished replica of the Tesla Laboratory, you will enjoy Tesla's transformer demonstration so that the neon lamp you hold in your hand will light up when the transformer is turned on even though it is not connected to any cable.
In the multimedia hall, you can watch an exciting documentary about Tesla, and the children will enjoy an interestingly landscaped children's playground featuring Tesla's inventions.
We also recommend visiting the nearby Gospić where Nikola Tesla was educated. Additionally, you can book a guided town tour of Gospić.
