The Maria Skłodowska-Curie Museum is a museum in Warsaw, Poland, devoted to the life and work of Polish two-time Nobel laureate Maria Skłodowska-Curie (1867–1934). The museum, which is sponsored by the Polish Chemical Society, is the only biographical museum in the world devoted to the discoverer of polonium and radium.The museum is located at 16 Freta Street (ulica Freta 16) in Warsaw's "New Town" district (dating from the 15th century), and is housed in the 18th-century apartment building in which Maria Skłodowska was born.Due to renovation, in December 2014 the museum was temporarily moved to 5 Freta Street.HistoryThe Maria Skłodowska-Curie Museum was established in 1967, by the Polish Chemical Society, on the centenary of the birth of the physicist-chemist. Participants in the museum's inauguration included the younger daughter and biographer of Maria Skłodowska-Curie, Eve Curie Labouisse; Eve's husband, the American politician and diplomat Henry Richardson Labouisse, Jr.; and nine Nobel Prize winners.The museum is housed in an 18th-century tenement, at number 16 on Freta Street in Warsaw's "New Town," that has been rebuilt several times. After the death of Maria Skłodowska-Curie in 1934, a plaque was attached to the building, commemorating her birth there and her epochal scientific discoveries. During the Warsaw Uprising (1944), the building was deliberately demolished by the German forces, but the plaque survived and was put back in place after the building was reconstructed following World War II.

  • Very small museum but, if you know what she was, it worth go there. There´s another museum, just crossing the street with a lot of things. You can go in both (like I did).
  • Lovely museum with a nice display of lab instruments and documents related to Marie Curie's life and work. They let me in just before closing to take a look around 😊 They also have books and other interesting things for sale down stairs
