Quartier Latin - 5e Arrondissement

Description

The construction of the Institut Radium started in 1911. It includes physics and chemistry laboratories run by Marie Curie and a biology laboratory run by Docteur Claudius Regaud. On the ground floor of the former Institut Radium, the Institut Curie displays scientific instruments that were used until the end of the 1930s, particularly those that enabled the production of the world’s first artificial radio-elements. It is here that in January 1934, Frédéric and Irène Joliot-Curie discovered artificial radioactivity! Photographs and archives retrace the life and work of ‘the family of five Nobel Prizes’. You can also visit Marie Curie’s office and chemistry laboratory, which was decontaminated in 1981, where chemistry instruments from the beginning of the century are on show. The Musée Curie offers a museographic tour designed around four themes: the family of five Nobel Prizes ; radium ; the Curie laboratory and the Curie cancer care foundation.
