    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.
