Located in the 5th district, the Museum Curie was established in 1934.

It is located in the laboratory where Marie Curie performed her research on radioactivity with her husband (who died in 1906) from 1914 until her death in 1934 . It is not far from the “shed” where the Curie couple discovered natural radium in 1898.  It is also here that her daughter and son-in-law Irène and Frédéric Joliot-Curie, discovered artificial radioactivity, for which they received the 1935 Nobel Prize for Chemistry.

In addition to seeing Mme Curie's laboratory, our guide will help us explore the exhibition on radioactivity and its applications in medicine, as well as a comprehensive appreciation of the life and times of this unique family of physicists and their huge contribution to modern science.

The guide provided by the museum will reveal the life and times of a family of unusual physicists and their huge contribution to science.
