Exhibition looks at life and work of Nikola Tesla.

"If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration". So said the great Serbian-American inventor Nikola Tesla. Best known for his contributions to the design of the modern alternating current (AC) electricity supply system, Tesla paved the way for future scientists.

An exhibition dedicated to his work and life is coming up, promising visitors the chance to discover more about the man and his work.

Opening on Friday and lasting well into April, the exhibition will trace Tesla's development as an inventor and as a person through a mix of modern and authentic technologies from his time. Tesla had an intense approach to life, one that this exhibition aims to showcase and with the help of specially trained guides the public will view working models of Tesla's machines, personal items, and his visions of the future.

The Nikola Tesla exhibition highlights the inventor-engineer's revolutionary discoveries in the domain of transmission and utilisation of alternating current, wireless communication, remote control and mechanical engineering -- all inventions far ahead of their time.

Conscious that the tendency toward amassing ever-increasing amounts of material goods meant man was moving away from noble goals, Tesla recommended preserving the ideals in life: "Each of us must have an ideal that moves it and satisfies it, but this ideal must not be material. It can be religion, art, science, whatever seems like an intangible force."

A man who preserved the ideals in his life and directed his life to his work and the pleasures it brought, he adhered to the principles of righteousness and selflessness leading to the general psychic movement that Tesla called beauty, light and compassion.

And so, with an aim to cover all things Tesla, the exhibition is separated in three sections. A timeline of his life, his work and inventions, and his world vision.

Scheduled school visits can be arranged for weekdays, as well as group visits for over 20 people. Other visitors are welcomed to view the exhibition without being part of a group, though once visitors enter the exhibition, they are grouped and led by a tour guide through the exhibition.
