A historical building

Recommended to visit the museum when you around Beitou. A historical building with some exhibition. Worth to pay a visit. Not to forget to try the public bath nearby.

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.

We had wanted to visit this museum on our last visit two years back but it was closed on Mondays. This time round, we managed to tour the house, see the baths and learn a bit more about the Japanese influence on Taiwan with regards to hot springs and baths. What was interesting for me was the video shown about... More

It is a mix of the Japanese and Western architect in this building. However it was very lovely inside, with informative details about the history of hot spring culture in Beitou. The volunteer elders there were also very cheerful and helpful, making us somehow feel like we were in the old time :)

There is not much to see there - if you are looking for the baths you should go to the hot springs! It has a sense of Japanese old style house, but not much to do. It is for free - so cannot complain.

If you come to this area, you will also see the public library which is a very beautiful architecture, you will walk to the thermal waters, etc. It is easy to... More

Visit this place and understand even more the important role hot springs play in Taiwanese culture. It is free and can get a bit crowded but it is definitely worth the visit. They even have cultural presentations during weekends.

The hot spring museum is a great way to get oriented to the historical and current use of Beitou hot springs. The displays were all great and housed in the historical Japanese building. The museum is free and you'll be required to use their slippers inside the building (or purchase disposable ones). We learned about the history of the area... More
