Introduction

This museum is housed in public hot spring bath built during the Japanese colonial era. The Tudor-style building has a brick and wood façade and black tile roof set picturesquely in the surrounding greenery. The building had fallen into a deep state of disrepair when local preservationists saved it from demolition. This is a good spot to learn about Beitou's rich hot spring culture and history.

    Interesting and free museum

    2020-02

    This is a great museum to get some information about the Beito area - its history re: the hot springs. It is free admission and you take off your shoes on entry and are provided with slippers to walk around in. It is staffed by volunteers who are lovely and very helpful. The building is an old bath house constructed by the Japanese in the colonial era. You enter from street level onto the 2 nd floor which has a lovely balcony that overlooks Beito park and creek and also has a large room with a tatami mat. You can rest on the tatami mat. Downstairs are the old baths. There is a large bath which the men used and smaller baths that the women used. There are historical displays explaining the history of the house and geological explanations of the hot springs . It is now used as a cultural centre for displays and concerts. It is informative and a great place to have a rest and learn about the local area.

    Nice little museum

    Just a short walk through the Beitou Park. Pretty building with informative displays outlining the rise and fall of Beitou as a resort town, and various historical facts about the operation of hot spring resorts during the era of Japanese rule. Thoroughly enjoyed my visit. Free admission too

    Admission is free, and rather informative for those who are new to hot springs. There is a nice tatami area for relaxing. A good place to burn 30mins - 1 hour. If you are new to hot springs, it would be a good idea to take a look!
