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.

First I have to say the museum is only open in the afternoons from 1pm to 5pm and 4 days a week only, admission is free, is really worth it the visit. Is a small museum but is the quality not the quantity of space...More

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...More

Quartier Latin
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

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
