This fall 2017, the Panthéon celebrates Marie Curie’s career, a female scientist buried at the Panthéon, through a temporary exhibition. A few meters from the scientist’s vault, scientific tools, original documents and belongings tell the impressive story of this woman who changed the world. To be visited from November 8, 2017 to March 4, 2018!
Running from November 8, 2017 to March 4, 2018, the new exhibition “Marie Curie, first woman at the Panthéon” allows the National Monument to return on the life of the twice Nobel Prize winner through five chapters. Born in November 7, 1867, Marie Curie became the first woman at the Panthéon in 1995.
Head of the National Monuments Center Philippe Bélaval explains: “Celebrating Marie Curie’s memory within the Panthéon was obvious. Monument honoring the collective memory of the Great Men, it’s a venue particularly symbolical for Marie Curie – the first woman to make it. Through her, we see the women who work for research and science and who must feel honores”.
Impressive archives, scientific tools, original documents and Maris Curie’s belongings reveal the steps which lead Marie Curie to the Panthéon, from her two Nobel Prizes to the opening of her Institut du Radium (now the Institut Curie), without forgetting the meeting with her husband skilled specialist in magnetism.
