Many tourists, myself included, are likely not to know anything about Alexandre Yersin and his remarkable contributions to science and medicine. Thanks to a series of curatorial comments accompanying the exhibits in this small, modest museum I left with an appreciation and understanding of his extraordinary life and accomplishments, of which the most notable was his work in the discovery...

If you wonder, why this is less popular than the "Russian Information Center", dear museum officials, try checking your opening hours. I bet the center is not closed from 11 am to 2 pm and on Sundays AND Mondays...which, by the way, is different from the information on Wikipedia and Lonely Planet, just to name two sites. Great job, guys!... More

Always good to learn about someone's life. Just a small museum. But I learnt who Alexandra was. 22.000 entrance fee. But worth it.

This museum is worth a look for so many reasons - it's easy to get to, great little bit of local history and a nice bit of information about Yersins life and interests. What a busy man he was! Love the letters home to his mother!

Tiny museum with a lot of old scientific tools from Yersin. Nice to walk around for 40 minutes or so.

Alexandre Yersin was a pioneer in the field of microbiology. He discovered a cure for the bubonic plague and he also set up branches of the Pasteur Institute in Vietnam. This museum pays homage to a man of many talents.

The displays are static in nature but the explanation of the exhibits is more often than not in English, French and Vietnamese.Can be viewed in under 1... More

This Museum is quite small, only few rooms. So the visit is very quick but the items are well presented and the staff very helpful. It is better to know a bit more about that amazing man before visiting the museum in order to enjoy even better the visit.

And this museum is a little underwhelming in that respect. Something more than static displays are needed. Perhaps a bit of hands on science? Otherwise you could just as easily read about it on Wikipedia :p
