Tesla Theater Sponsored By Entergy
The Museum of Discovery is home to the Guinness World Record musical bi-polar Tesla coil. Named for its inventor, Nikola Tesla, the developer of the alternating current system of electricity used today, our Tesla coil creates 200,000 volts of electricity at a high frequency visible to the eye. By modulating the frequency of the plasma, or lightning, the coil produces, museum educators can play well-known songs on the device. Telsa shows are free to museum, thanks to the generous support of Entergy. It is offered several times each day.
