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.

    Glad I went

    Just steps from the MRT station’XinBeito’ where most of the hot spring bath houses/hotels are located), the picturesque tourist area is very well designed and this Museum is one of the gems within. It is free admission, but you have to take off your shoes and changed into the provided slippers to protect the ground, and you are even required to take off the slippers if you want to walk/sit on the ‘tatami’ on the first floor of the museum. There were guided tour starting at 3:00pm, but I did not wait for it and just went downstairs according to the direction. The display and explanation were well presented and very informative.

    Small museum

    The Beitou Hot Spring Museum is one of the tourist attractions in the area. The museum itself is small and there is not much to explore inside, but it does provide some education on the history of the area and the hot springs.

    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.
