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.

    Costs 5-10 pln, and a visit is less than an hour. Great way to learn about Marie Curies history in her birth house in one of Warsaws most beautiful streets.  more »

  • Small but very nice. As a tourist I expected something different; I'm still impressed by the respect of the memory that this place represents.

Where to stay in Warsaw

Many centrally located hotels in Warsaw cater mostly to business travelers, which makes them much too expensive for backpackers and other visitors on a limited budget. Although hostels may seem like the only affordable option at the height of the season, you can find less expensive lodgings in mid-range hotels on the outskirts of town. Alternatively, time your visit for the weekend, when many hotels near the city center slash their prices and offer special deals for early booking.
