  • Really enjoyed this museum. Original artefacts, letters and furniture and equipment from Yersin and also some scientific equipment from Pasteur's museum. As a scientist I found this museum fascinating and learned much more than what I knew already about the plague. It's quite small but packs in a lot of information. A pleasant way to spend an hour or two.
  • Small museum but enough to learn many things about this Pasteur Institution's member biography and some of the worst diseases of the 19th century. What a doctor! Vietnamese were part of the research from the beginning, and that is not enough clear.
