A great museum with a lot less people than on the major attractions in Paris, spend an hour or so walking around looking at the life of Pasteur, located just opposite of the Pasteur Institute where his heritage lives on.

Pasteur was such an interesting and accomplished man.. unfortunately, he is really let down by the "tour" at this museum. In order to view the museum, you must go on a 'guided tour'. However, the tour consists of a lady taking you into a small...More
