Nikola Tesla Memorial Centre

  Smiljan      (+385-53) 74 65 30     10 Oct 2023
Situated in the village of Smiljan near Gospić, the centre was opened in 2006 to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the birth of Nikola Tesla, the epoch-making inventor whose work on electric current, x-rays, light bulbs, radio transmissions and remote-control devices helped shape the world we live in today. The centre contains an accessible and entertaining audio-visual display that allows visitors to get up close to Tesla’s unique gift for invention. The centre comprises several buildings, including the house in which Tesla was born, a multimedia centre, a Tesla-designed turbine and a recreation of the laboratory he built in Colorado Springs in 1899. With a children’s playground on site too, it’s a great place for a family day out.
