Musée Pasteur information
Tours of the apartment where the famous chemist and bacteriologist spent the last seven years of his life (1888–95) take you through Pasteur’s private rooms, with odds and ends including gifts presented to him by heads of state and drawings he did as a young man.
You'll need to show a passport or ID card to gain entrance. Tours lasting 45 minutes to one hour are in French; printed English guides are available.
After Pasteur’s death, the French government wanted to entomb his remains in the Panthéon, but his family, acting in accordance with his wishes, obtained permission to have him buried at his institute. The great savant lies in the basement crypt.
