This museum was really excellent!! It’s just one room, but it had so much information about Yersin and his life. If you have any interest in biology or medical history, it’s so worth going to!

Alexander Yersin was a French Hugenot by descent who lived in Switzerland in his early years. He spent most of his life in Vietnam. He was much loved for his contribution to science and the country. This museum celebrates his life.

1 floored museum but packed with Yersin's original equipment that he used in his works. Quite empty too.
