Established on December 5, 1952, The Nikola Tesla Museum is a repository of Tesla's original documents (about 160,000 of them), books and journals, historic technical exhibits, photographs, plans and drawings.

The museum received the bulk of the estate when an American court awarded the belongings to Mr. Sava Kosanovic, Tesla's nephew, as the only rightful heir. In 1951, there were brought to Belgrade in accordance with Tesla's will.

Tesla's ashes are also in the museum, his created remains enclosed in a gold-plated orb.
