Built during the Japanese era in Taiwan and has went through a many transformations, being a police station, a local county reception house, Kuomintang HQ and was deserted due to detorations and finally after restoration it transform into a municipal museum call Beitou Hot Spring Museum and has become one of the major tourist attraction of Beitou. The design of the bathhouse was said based on the Japan Bathhouse Mount Izu Hot Spring. The building consist of two floors which the first floor are built with red bricks and the second floors with timber. First floor consist of the public bath house for male and female and the exhibit area of the discovery of the mineral in the district and the geological development of the Hot Spring.

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