Museum

The Pasteur Museum provides a fascinating insight into three aspects of the life and work of Louis Pasteur all in one place. The apartment where he spent the last seven years of his life. The scientific souvenir room which traces his major discoveries based on the original scientific instruments he used. A magnificent Byzantine-style crypt where Louis Pasteur is buried alongside his wife.

The Museum History

Institut Pasteur Museum

After 30 years spent at the Ecole normale, in 1888 Louis Pasteur moved to a specially designed apartment at the Institut Pasteur. The apartment that has since become the Pasteur Museum is remarkably evocative of the personality of its former occupant and rich in wonderfully preserved collections.
