Interesting museum
Jun 2020
We had the pleasure of exploring this little museum in February 2020 (just before covid struck). I had not heard of Alexandre Yersin before my visit - but had heard of Yersinia pestis, the bacterium involved in the plague. I found it fascinating to learn more about this interesting man and see his photos of Vietnam in the 1890s and early 1900s. Definitely worth an hour or 2 of your time in Nha Trang.

Lovely, informative and educational.

If you are a history buff and would like to learn about a genius of a man and his life then do come here and spend some time. Yersin was an amazing person who changed the world to become a better place to live. Because it is COVID time the tourists are scant but if you are here in Nha Trang and are wondering what to do, visit the museum. It is well displayed and the staff (lady) is very informative and was a pleasure to speak with.

Amazing man
Feb 2020 • Couples
How can anybody fulfill so many different roles that required immense knowledge whilst facing dangerous situations a lot of the time? If you want to know the answer visit Yersin's museum and marvel at the ability of the man and his achievements in producing vaccines to combat plaques and to have established institutions that continue his work. A small museum but well worth a visit with a small entrance fee of 20000 dongs.

Interesting way to pass a wet afternoon or escape the heat
Dec 2019
Not a very large museum but did give an interesting insight into the life of the man, and some fundamental education on virology and mechanisms of disease transfer. We enjoyed it but it may not be for everyone. Not much for small kids. Don't get confused where to go, as this is still on the site of an active Clinic giving out shots!

Small Museum for Nha Trang's Renaissance Man
Sep 2019
The pieces in this museum are virtually objet d'art. Albeit from the late 19th and 20th centuries. Yersin's achievements for Vietnam and indeed the world are astonishing. I now understand why he is so revered in Nha Trang.

Excellent and very informative museum.

Very worthwhile a visit if you’re in Nha Trang. The museum consists of quite a few photographs (some taken by Yersin himself) as well as many scientific devices, tools and letters of Yersin’s to his mother, which provides small snapshots of the status of his researches at the time.

A little cultural gem
Aug 2019 • Solo
This is an excellent museum. I spent an hour going around reading every snippet of info (available in vietnamese, english and french) and I left keen to discover more. Very well curated 1 room exhibit about a very, very interesting man. I highly recommend.

Only downside is I would have liked to see some books for sale in the gift shop.

Small, old but informative - Ok if you have time
Jun 2019 • Friends
The museum locates inside the Paster institute. It's quite old & small. There's a lot of documents, books of/about Dr. Yersin. If you are not interested in him, it takes about 10-15 mins there. The entrance ticket is VND20K/person.
