Short description

Marie Sklodowska-Curie was born in the museum building in 1867 and spent the first years of her life here. Even after the move, the later double Nobel Prize winner grew up near Warsaw’s Old Town as well as the Royal Road. From 1815 to 1916, Poland was part of the Russian Empire, where women were not allowed to study. Therefore, she eventually emigrated to Paris. An extraordinary world career began. Nevertheless, she remained faithful to Poland and especially to Warsaw.

In the museum, of course, we also learn about her scientific achievements (Nobel Prizes in 1903 and 1911 in physics and chemistry), but the exhibition focuses mainly on Marie’s strong personality, who achieved magnificent things in a world dominated by men.

@ City of Warsaw


The exhibition was reopened in 2017 after several years of renovation work on the building.

A lift was installed in the shaft from the basement area to the top floor so that people with walking disabilities can reach all floors without difficulty. Moving between the rooms is effortless with a wheelchair.

The exhibits are also visible and legible for people in wheelchairs.
