The Museum is situated at 10 Tran Phu St, Xuong Huan, on the seafront.
Opening hours are from 7.30am until 11.30 am and 2pm until 5pm Monday to Saturday. (closed Saturday afternoons)
The museum is dedicated to Swiss born Dr Alexandre Yersin who among other things, introduced rubber and quinine producing trees to the country and identified the bacillus that causes Bubonic Plague. He founded the Pasteur Institute in Nha Trang. He lived out his life and died in the city
His library is available to be browsed in the museum. It is an interesting look into a man who founded so much in Vietnam. It was he that founded the hill station that was to become Dalat.

I have been developing the InSeAsia website for three years. It genuinely is a labour of love. I have lived in Southeast Asia for 9 years and have no plans to ever leave.
I am extremely grateful to anyone who follows me, up votes, comments or re-steems my work.
Come and check me out. If ever you come to Saigon, Vietnam get in touch and we can meet up.
