As a microbiologist, I HAD to visit this museum, and was very impressed with the scientific and personal items that one could see there. It is definitely worth the trip and the entry fee. However, the staff and museum policies definitely do not make you feel particularly welcome - no photos allowed, limited time allowed in each area (because the... More

When I asked my friend for some advice about visiting Paris, she exclaimed, "I went to the BEST place - Louis Pasteur's house - you MUST go there!" To be fair, we are both medical doctors, so perhaps that gave it some extra interest for us. My parents (who are not doctors) were disinclined to believe it was the "best... More

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 room with glass cases filled with artifacts, where she makes you stay there for half... More

A very interesting museum with beautiful rooms! The guided tour (which is obligatory) is a bit poor. I had the impression that the guide did not really like his job. Nevertheless I recommend this museum to everyone who is interested in science or who likes watching beautiful old buildings and its furniture. Especially the crypt which you get to see... More

If you are into medicine or just want to avoid the tourists while increasing your IQ, you won't want to miss this important historical museum. Admission is only 3EURO. Over 1000 items used by the famous researcher are on display. Also on the grounds is the crypt and alter of Pasteur surrounded in a lavish marble and gold décor. Open... More

As a student who just finished a Degree in Microbiology and Immunology this was a must see while in Paris! It was amazing see his lab, his microscopes, an old school autoclave and even the ACTUAL swan neck flasks from his legendary experiments which proved Germ Theory! as well as examples of experiments from his Rabies work. I was the... More

a special and exciting museum! very well organized, and includes the laboratory of Dr. Pasteur personal quarters and his wife, and the visit to receive a document with the history (brief) of his life as a scientist, available in many languages, including Portuguese. The crypt is beautiful, a work of art, and worthy of hosting this wonderful man who devoted... More

If you are into microbiology and chemistry and know about the legacy Monsieur Pasteur, you can spend hours, maybe days watching the displays. Every piece, every test tube, everything is so exciting and you can learn lots by just staying there a couple of hours. I still don't know why they don't allow people to take pictures without flash.

Although Pasteur as a scientist was great and his discoveries/accomplishments were outstanding and helped to change the world. We did not enjoy the museum tour. We were told you had to take one of the scheduled tours so we bought tickets. There was no tour or guide, an employee led us to a room with about 11 display cases, gave... More

Seeing the lab equipment that Pasteur used and his lab notes were just a thrill! I couldn't believe that I was standing right next to his famous swan-necked flasks, which are still sterile! The actual rabbit spinal cord infected with rabies, which was used in rabies vaccination development, is also on display and represented in a painting of Pasteur. His... More
