Nikola Tesla Experience Center in Karlovac is a truly deserved dedication to the unsurpassed scientific mind that many believe invented in the 21st century.
The interpretation and motivational Nikola Tesla Experience Center Karlovac is located at Rakovac 6, right next to Karlovac Gymnasium, where Tesla graduated in 1873. The Center covers almost 800 square meters on three floors.
The construction lasted five years, and a total of 6.5 million euros were invested in the Center and the parking lot as a part of this creative project.
Lighting & Thunder of Ideas
A light spectacle, dance, lightning and thunder, and hundreds of light bulbs lit in the hands of the audience marked the opening of the Nikola Tesla Experience Center in Karlovac. The genius scientist even appeared in the window of the school where he graduated 150 years ago and said:
“I don’t regret that others stole my ideas. I regret that they don’t have their own. Enter this Center of mine and find your ideas”.

STEM OR STEAM?
You will surely enjoy the variety of programs and activities while learning about Tesla and STEAM. We often hear about education and the term STEM in the media. For those who did not know, it stands for four educational fields – science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. However, more and more, another letter is being added to this acronym – A for arts.
Early learning in the STEM field opens the door for children to critical and logical reasoning. It encourages them to think about design and engineering based on science and mathematics.
Although the Center encourages a creative approach and the search for innovative solutions to problems, it is not only concerned with its inventions. The main focus is on Tesla as a man.
