Really enjoyed this museum. Original artefacts, letters and furniture and equipment from Yersin and also some scientific equipment from Pasteur's museum. As a scientist I found this museum fascinating and learned much more than what I knew already about the plague. It's quite small but packs in a lot of information. A pleasant way to spend an hour or two.
This museum is to the left upon entry. Entrance fee is 20 000 VND for adult. Located on the first floor are simple history related to Dr. Yersin. You can see certificates, letters, photos, maps, some artifacts and books. It is amazing with limited resources then discovery of vaccines can be made. It takes about 45 minutes to complete the tour and read the documentations. This museum is located near the beach and housed together with Pasteur Institute which is operational.
Well worth seeing! There are English translations although they are a bit hard to find. A man who was curious to the end....
Cute museum about Alexander Yersin. Small and with a limited collection, but interpretation in English and cool science stuff. Worth a beach detour.
Definitely the place if you have a fetish for old scientific gear. Would have loved more signage around what the man was about and what the equipment was. In and out in 40 mins.
