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.

Not a big museum but very interesting and I certainly learned about an amazing person. It was well set out with plenty of written information. Not really suitable for young children who would probably be bored. For me it was a good history lesson.
