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

This small museum is the actual office and laboratory of Marie Curie, which makes it more intimate and moving than a detached museum exhibit. You can actually see her desk. Go outside into the courtyard at the back and see where she relaxed. The laboratory...More
