Belgrade’s Nikola Tesla museum marked its 66th anniversary on Monday with a ceremony at which its director and the Serbian capital’s assistant mayor said that exhibitions of Tesla artifacts would be organized abroad.

Assistant Mayor Andreja Mladenovic said the city has very ambitious plans to expand the permanent exhibit of Tesla’s personal items and investions while acting museum director Ivona Jevtic said exhibitions are expected to be organized in Greece, Cyprus, Japan and Russia.

She said the museum is working to digitalize and conserve Tesla’s inventions and personal items for future generations.

The Serbian government said earlier that the museum would be moved to the central Belgrade neighborhood of Dorcol to a restored power production building on the banks of the Danube.

The government and Serbian Orthodox Church signed an agreement several years ago to move Tesla’s ball-shaped metal urn from the museum to the park around the St Sava temple. The urn was supposed to be entombed under a statute of the scientist but that plan was abandoned following protests.
