Wednesday: 09:00 – 17:00


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.

    Must visit if you stay in Beitou


    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.

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


    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.

    History of Beitou hot spring


    If you are an Onsen lover, you cannot skip this museum. The history of Beitou hot spring is comprehensively displayed. What the most interesting is that this building was once a bathing facility. You can still see the bathtubs. The entrance is free. It is a must see in Beitou.

    Surprisingly deep history of hot springs in Beitou


    I really enjoyed this museum. The exterior is very unique and detailed, and the inside was equally evocative of the areas history as a cultural entertainment and leisure centre. The museum had some very interesting exhibits on contemporary local craftsmanship, including pyrography (painting with fire). Details on the rich history of the area grab your attention, set around historic hot pools. Overall a very pleasant experience.
