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.

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

Entrance fee (40.000 VND pp?). Simple museum, technically not very advanced, but you got a lot of informative panels with information in French and English telling about Dr. Yersin's life as he was born, went to Paris where he worked in the Institute Pasteur, the way he arrived in Nha Trang as he worked on a ship travelling between Ho...

This is a small museum in the Pasteur Institute dedicated to a man who is still revered in Vietnam today. As plague research is a specialised subject it would help to do some reading before making a visit. Entry fee is 26,000 vnd and there were no other visitors while we were there, so don't expect crowds! Photography is not... More

A small museum located on the main street opposite the beach. An interesting exhibition of an even more interesting man. Like many things in Vietnam, entry is extremely cheap, which makes it worth a visit if you've got an hour or so to pass. I imagine the museum would me more interesting for those interested in medicine.

I did a bit of reading before visiting this museum. That enhanced my appreciation of this interesting man. Maybe, sometime in the future, someone will make a movie of his fascinating life. Like others have stated, it would be a better museum if there were more explanations of what the exhibits are. Fortunately, I can read a bit of French.... More
