I don't see the point of this new museum, all of the good stuff is already in the existing museum and they won't be letting go of any of it ...

Raised of $850,000 Goal
And right now a non-profit is trying to buy the property and turn it into a Nikola Tesla Museum. The property is listed at $1.6 million, and this non-profit has received a matching grant from New York State of up to $850k. This means that if we can raise $850k, New York State will match us for that same amount -- putting the total raised at $1.7 million.

Why was his things confiscated by the govt? Now that its many years later, surely they can release this info for the general population? Could the museum ask the govt for it? What ever fancy tales there are about his work. Surely releashing it would be the answer to these questions and who knows? May inspire some one else. After a google I came across this link. There already is a museum and his work is there.

I think a lot of Tesla's research could have been retrofitted by power hungry people to make weapons. There is no doubt in my mind about that. I can see why the government would have confiscated lots of his stuff.
