#16 of 55 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.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 (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.

  • Are you "Science nerd" will this museum fit you better than others. You get a nice glimpse of her and the family's life through images and text, part instruments, etc., you have half an hour to spare, this is a good place to look. Costs not many crowns either. Think there is a lift there.

  • This was on our list of places to visit and we stumbled upon it going to a different location so we went in. We were not disappointed it was very informative and interesting. If you want to learn more...  more »
  • Maybe it's the site of Warsaw that impressed me the most. It is true that the Museum is small, but it's organized very well, and understand the uniqueness of Maria Curie not only as a scientist but, more importantly, as a person, including aspects of his private life (his cooking recipe book!). Also, describes his birth family, truly admirable for cohesion and culture.

  • Great see through on Maria Currie life and achievements. Had a problem with the top floor exhibit wgich lacked on English explanations. A good read for science people.
  • Historically significant place. But very little to see. 15 to 20 minutes to read all the information on displays. 11 zloty to enter. Only one floor.
  • I really liked it. The Polish are really pride of Marie Curie and this is seen in this museum. Lots of material about her life and work.
  • Nth much inside the museum. Just a later furnished room and panels about her family and life. Some flasks and experimental tools
  • Nice museum, a bit small and not organized chronicly. Still interesting.
