The Nikola Tesla Museum, founded as the first technical museum in Yugoslavia and the only one that preserves the original legacy of one of the world’s most famous scientists, celebrated its 70th anniversary.

“Through the efforts of Sava Kosanović, Nikola Tesla’s personal legacy and objects were transferred to Belgrade in 1951, and on December 5, 1952, the Yugoslav government passed a decision on the establishment of the Nikola Tesla Museum, which was opened to visitors in 1955. The museum in Belgrade is the only one that preserves the original personal legacy of Tesla, which consists of valuable collections of over 160,000 documents, about 2,000 books and magazines, over 1,200 historical-technical exhibits, more than 1,500 photographs and glass plates, as well as over 1,000 plans and drawings,” said director Ivona Jevtić at ceremony held on the occasion of the jubilee celebration.

Recognizing the universal importance of Nikola Tesla and his creativity, in 2003 UNESCO included Tesla’s archive, as part of the movable documentary heritage of humanity, in the “Memory of the World” register, which represents the highest form of protection of a cultural asset.

At the national level, in 2005, the National Assembly of the Republic of Serbia made a decision to designate the archival material kept in the Nikola Tesla Museum, as Nikola Tesla’s personal fund, as a cultural asset of exceptional importance.
