The Mütter Museum will hold the first annual Marie Curie’s Radiant Ball on April 12, 2024.

The Radiant Ball honors Marie Curie, the first woman to win a Nobel Prize and one of the most important figures in the history of medicine. In 1921, Madame Curie visited The College of Physicians of Philadelphia — a fellowship of medical professionals founded in 1787 and the home of the Mütter Museum and Historical Medical Library — to discuss her work with radium (one of two new elements that she and husband Pierre Curie had recently discovered). More on her visit here. 

The Radiant Ball takes on a luminous theme in honor of Curie’s visit a century ago, with shimmering lighting and Philly’s favorite hot jazz band,Drew Nugent & The Midnight Society, leading an evening of dancing. Attendees will get after-hours access to exhibitions and the event will include special access to collections related to Curie’s visit and work.

Early bird tickets, which start at $35 and come with a free drink ticket, are available now.
