House and laboratory of Marie Curie

    Marie Salomea Skłodowska-Curie (Maria Salomea Skłodowska) (born 1867, Warsaw, Russian Empire – died 1934, Passy, Haute-Savoie, France). She was a Polish and naturalized-French physicist and chemist who conducted pioneering research on radioactivity. As the first of the Curie family legacy of five Nobel Prizes, she was the first woman to win a Nobel Prize, the first person and the only woman to win the Nobel Prize twice – in physics (1903) and chemistry (1911), and the only person to win the Nobel Prize in two scientific fields. She was the first woman to become a professor at the University of Paris in 1906. Located in Marie Curie’s former laboratory, the museum traces the different stages of the discoveries of the Curies.
