My 11 year old daughter is really into science and she loves this place... I love it too.... the timeline about eh Curies... the Office and Lab.... every detail.... we spend like 3 hours there... even it's a small museum every detail it's really important... it's history... and we both love it.

We visited this museum on our second day in Paris. It's free, the staff are polite and helpful and the exhibits are very well organised. There is an interactive touchscreen taking us through the life and work of Pierre and Marie Curie. One can also see the laboratory and office used by Marie Curie.

If you are a scientist in chemistry or physics, this museum is a must see for you. It is free of charge for everyone, so it is also useful to go and know the history about radioactive materials. The museum is small, but if you read all information (also available in English), it will take some time. Marie Curie actually... More

Again "the geeks' atlas" took us to this museum in Paris to learn about the life, times and work of Marie Curie and her incredible family (5 Nobel Prizes amongst them I think?) The history of our understanding and use of radioactive materials is fascinating. To think at one time that there were people selling - and buying! - radioactive... More

For most normal people, they don't really care to learn much about physics and science on vacation. However, I guess I'm that weird guy who likes to check out things like this that aren't your typical art museum. The Musee Curie is a modest, but interesting tribute to Marie Curie's contributions to modern physics, technology, and medical practices. The museum... More

No prior knowledge necessary this small museum with well done exhibits is a great way to learn about several great scientists and their work and radioactivity. Loved the antique geiger counter.

The museum is quite small, with only a few exhibits, but those show the, to modern eyes, crude and rudimentary equipment used by one of the most important scientists of the 20th century. Photographs describe much of the story of Marie Curie (and her husband and daughter - who was also an important scientist), and they are the only additions... More

The museum itself is small & compact, but welcoming and interesting. I would recommend this as a visit to see a truly focused individual that attempted to improve through science the world

The museum is housed in Pierre and Marie's Radium Institute, which in itself is interesting enough. The small museum does a good job of explaining the research of the Curies, amd it even sells a good English biografie of Marie Curie. Definitely worth a visit, but only opened a couple of days per week.

I really liked this museum, and is is a stand-out among those in Paris for several reasons: (1) it is FREE; (2) all of the text in the exhibits are in French AND English; and (3) you can take all of the photos you want; and (4) the staff are friendly and helpful (and speak English). All of this is... More

Staying in Quartier Latin

Neighborhood Profile
Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life, architectural splendor 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 neighborhood provides real nourishment for the mind, belly, and soul.
