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

This is a very small museum with many interesting photos and artefacts pertaining to Pierre and Marie Curie's work. I was particularly interested to see Marie Curie's office and laboratory.

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

The museum is small, but has so much information. We spent time using the interactive time line to find out about Curie. My family is very science oriented and it was enjoyed.
