  • If you are interested in the character of Alexandre Yersin, don't miss to visit this Museum, especially if you read the book of Patrick Deville, "Plague and Cholera", which I highly recommend! The Museum is very interesting and particularly educational, without being boring! In addition, there is nobody! Do not hesitate to spend the afternoon as we did...

  • It explains quite well the history and the life of Alexandre Yersin, and brings you on a voyage back in time. It includes several authentic items from his life.
  • I realy don't know why this place is so special. It's just a room with some old stuff.
  • Small but with items of genuine interest
  • Pretty cool for the history of this great man. His life is a dream.
