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...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

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....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...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 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,...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
