Beitou Hot Spring Museum

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.

    Nice to read the hot spring history


    It is free for public, you needed to take away your shoes to walk indoor, many historic pictures and facilities are showed for public.

    It was a nice visit to the museum. I learned a lot about the history of Taiwan during the the Japanese invasion and the role of hot springs. You will need to remove shoes before entering the museum. It was a free museum.

    This is a beautiful building with a lot of information and insights into the Japanese occupation. You have to change into slippers at the door, which I found a bit dangerous on the slippery staircases. Be careful.

    I think this museum is of local interest only, tells the story and development/exploitation of the hot springs in the area.
