5 Nobel Prizes amongst the family! An incredible legacy passed down, and amazing the work this couple (and then Marie solo and then with her daughter) accomplished in the field of cancer research. And it’s only been 100 years since cancer started to be remedied...More
If you are into science at all then this is a must see.
It gives a very good profile of the life and achievements of a pioneering female scientist, holding her own in male dominated field.
Two Nobel prizes, one shared with Pierre and one...More
It is a bit difficult to find only because you keep seeing signs for the "institute" but not "musee" and the locals had no idea about the place. That being said it has her lab and her office and enough information in English that it...More
Small but very educational and powerful it is obviously focused on Pierre and Marie Curie and their family. If you like science and have kids that want to learn a bit more it is recommended. The big touch screen that details Marie's life events on...More
Calling all geeks! If you are interested in the history of radiation, or chemistry or science in general, this is a great little museum to visit. There were lots of things from the Curies' early investigations of radioactivity (a five-Nobel prize family), extending to curative...More
The museum incorporates some of M Curie's work space as well as an exhibition of the Curie/Joliot-Curie discoveries. Make sure you stay to the end of Rue Pierre et Marie Curie rather than follow the signs that take to the right and a closed gate....More

This is a good place to duck into to escape the cold rain or sleet during a Paris winter. I learnt some interesting facts about radium and its history in its use in make-up and drinks. What was most fascinating to me was Madam Curie's...More
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life, architectural splendour and ongoing merriment. The small streets are filled with classical buildings, student bars and lively eateries while the squares are dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which celebrates the great men and women of France. During
the day students rush from classes to the library and intellectuals people watch from the terraced cafés. As night time falls the surrounding establishments fill up and the merriment really begins. The liveliest parts are around Rue Mouffetard, lined with crêperies and international street food eateries, and Place de la Contrescarpe characterised by terraced brasseries, this neighbourhood provides real nourishment for the mind, belly, and soul.
I think about an hour should do it. It is small but there is a fair amount to read/see, including the interactive panel with information about the family. We paired it with a visit to the Pantheon since they are relatively... More
