Institute Pasteur, Paris

4.0
#8 of 9 in Childrens Museums in Paris
See the apartment and lab of a great scientist at Institute Pasteur. This is where Louis Pasteur, famous for discovering the process now called pasteurization, spent the last seven years of his life. Hardly touched since that time, the building is chock-full of over 1,000 pieces of personal memorabilia and scientific instruments. Pasteur and his wife are buried on the grounds in a flamboyant, mosaic-decorated mausoleum. You may only enter the site by guided tour, and photos are not allowed.

  • Really well done and beautiful courses! One of the top for research
  • Very nice place
  • Excellent
  • Interminable wait. Arrival at 14:30 here I leave the Center at 17:30 women who make the sting are very friendly. But hop hop is folded. You're still not more than 5 minutes. They speak each turn. As of robots. Like it was a text to receive a patient. In short I recommend another Center or if you're patient then pastor.

  • I recommend for vaccinations before a trip abroad. Allows you to group the medical consultation, medical advice according to the countries to be visited, the purchase of vaccine, vaccination and the order for the trip. Top!

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
