Alexandre Yersin Museum, Nha Trang

10 Tran Phu Street
Nha Trang
Tel: 84 5 882 9540's insider take:

There isn't a Frenchman more revered in Vietnam than Alexandre Yersin (1863–1943), the bacteriologist who discovered the cause of bubonic plague. Yersin founded the Pasteur Institute in Nha Trang, led scientific expeditions into the Central Highlands, and recommended the French establish the hill station of Dalat. The remarkable life of this Swiss-born polymath, including his lifesaving research, laboratory instruments, and scientific library, is on display at the Alexandre Yersin Museum, on the grounds of the seaside clinic.

Open Mondays through Fridays 7:30 to 11 am and 2 to 4:30 pm.
