  • A small museum, with the knowledge of the French language here is quite interesting. Come on purpose, probably not worth it, although it was very interesting to learn about the life and discoveries of this amazing man.

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

  • 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.
