#18 of 62 in Museums in Warsaw
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 . 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 in Warsaw's "New Town" district, 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.
The 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 (ulica Freta) 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.

  • The Marie Curie Museum is a small museum dedicated to the great scientist who was twice Nobel laureate, and her family also with other laureates. For a person with a life as interesting as Marie Curie would expect better. But we can't forget that she spent most of her life in Paris where she also has a museum.

  • A few rooms. One with placards with the story of Madame Curie's life in Polish and English. Case after case of vintage scientific instruments, but lacking in interpretation.  more »
  • Little Museum Street freta rather interesting and well done entrance 8 PNL for students (not bcp more like 11 or Max 15 for the normal fare) brochure in French even if the translation leaves a little to be desired...

  • This is a tiny museum, but I really liked it. Marie Curie is the most important scientist and woman from Poland and even though the museum is small you learn a lot about her. There are many pictures from her life and you learn about her whole life from early childhood to her death. The museum is more about the person than her research. You should really visit, even if you are on a weekend trip.
  • Very small collection and the bag-deposit bit didn't feel safe at all.
  • Really enjoyed this visit. It was a wonderfully laid out museum and you really get a feeling that Curie had lived there. The museum was really informative and inspiring, I'd definitely love to go again!
  • the famous curie.,sadly closed, didnt visit inside
  • Well worth a visit. Not easy to follow route but lots to see. Don't miss the 3D flight over Warsaw - easily missed at tail of the Liberator.
