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.

    This is a quick museum - maybe 45 min - that tells the history of the springs. Housed in a former bath house.

    A short overview of Beitou Hot Spring

    2019-05

    On your way to Beitou Hot Spring itself, this is a convenient stop to learn a bit about the history of the place (and use the free public toilet). It takes 15’-20’ to go through the 2-3 small exhibition rooms

    Must visit if you stay in Beitou

    2019-05

    We stayed in Beitou for a 4 days family holiday and this is one of the few places that captures the history of the city and does so with interesting exhibitions in a historical building, and in English! The place is free to visit and the tour should take slightly less than an hour if you want to go through all the exhibits. There are old baths and also a history of the city as a hot spring place from the time before the Japanese turned Beitou into a trendy destination for tourism. If you are going to stay a few days to try the hot springs, i think this place is worth spending a bit of time in to learn their history.

    This museum about hot spring. It is about the early day the hot spring is being used by the Japanese and local.

    Good place to learn about the history of Beitou hot spring and the area.

    2019-03

    We weren't sure what to expect when we walked into the museum but was surprised by what we saw. This was a historical building and they have restored it and done it up nicely. There were rooms that display artefacts and write-ups about the history of the area (if you take the time to read, that is). If you want to know about Beitou more, this is definitely worth a visit.
