Musée Curie - Institut Curie, Paris
Categories: Specialty Museums, Museums
The Musée Curie is a historical museum focusing on radiological research. It is located in the 5th arrondissement at 1, rue Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris, France, and open Wednesday to Saturday, from 1pm to 5pm; admission is free. The museum was renovated in 2012, thanks to a donation from Ève Curie.The museum was established in 1934, after Curie's death, on the ground floor of the Curie Pavilion of the Institut du Radium. It was formerly Marie Curie's laboratory, built 1911-1914, and where she performed research from 1914-1934. In this laboratory her daughter and son-in-law Irène and Frédéric Joliot-Curie discovered artificial radioactivity, for which they received the 1935 Nobel Prize for Chemistry.The museum contains a permanent historical exhibition on radioactivity and its applications, notably in medicine, focusing primarily on the Curies, and displays some of the most important research apparatus used before 1940. It also contains a center for historical resource which holds archives, photographs, and documentation on the Curies, Joliot-Curies, the Institut Curie, and the history of radioactivity and oncology.Make Musée Curie - Institut Curie part of your personalized Paris itinerary using our Paris vacation planner.

Great for Chemistry nerds, you can actually see where Marie Curie worked. The one downfall is that the opening hours are quite short.
It is one of the best museum I have been in Paris. A must for everyone who is interested in the early research on nuclear physics or on the famlie Curie. The staff is very nice and helpful. Enjoy your stay!
Very nice small museum. I learned so much about Madam Curie!
I went at 4h30 it was close, even though it should be open till 5h
Sylvain ThrdThe content is very interesting, presented thematically and chronologically. The full tour takes not more than 2 hours taking the time to read everything and everything look.show original
