ATHENS – An exhibition entitled “Nikola Tesla: The man ahead of his Time”, relating to the life and work of “the inventor of the 20th century” Nikola Tesla at the Kotsanas Museum of Ancient Greek Technology in downtown Athens (Pindarou 6 & Akadimias, Kolonaki) that was going to conclude in January 2020 has been extended until March 18, 2020 due to the strong public interest.

The exhibition, based on items from the permanent collection of the Nikola Tesla Museum in Belgrade, explores the life the eccentric Serb-American genius who was responsible inventions as fundamental to our lives as alternating current, the Tesla coil, the induction motor, radio waves and three-phase electric current.

The main part of the exhibit consists of interactive models of Tesla’s inventions – including a Tesla coil and reconstructions of his laboratories, while also focusing on his unique personality and his dedication to science and progress for its own sake, rather than for personal gain. Tesla was indifferent to fame and accolades and died alone and in poverty, leaving as his legacy to future generations a series of inventions and technology that are now more widely used than ever.

The exhibition, which opened its doors to the public on October 1, seeks to teach but also hopes to inspire visitors and create the incentives that will inspire tomorrow’s inventors. Based on the comments in the visitors’ book, the public’s response has been enthusiastic and it makes an ideal destination for families, with exhibits that appeal to both young and old.
