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. (Due to Covid safety procedures, we are not currently offering Tesla shows.)

We are very thankful for our corporate sponsors.
