Beitou Hot Spring Museum, Taipei

(300+ reviews on the web)
Specialty Museum
The largest bathhouse in this part of the world at the time it was built, Beitou Hot Spring Museum invites you to start exploring the rich history and culture of Beitou’s hot springs. A Japanese magistrate built the Victorian-style building with a Japanese interior in 1913. The red brick first floor houses the original public baths, where a large central pool, elegantly decorated with stained glass windows, was reserved for male customers only. In a niche in front of its entrance, see a giant piece of "hokutolite" or Beitou stone--a precious mineral with healing properties. The wooden second floor features a tatami lobby and several exhibition areas, including a multimedia auditorium where you can watch an educational video about the museum. The view from the balcony explains why in the 1970s, Beitou was known as the Taiwanese Hollywood.

  • 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...  more »
  • Japan is one of the remnants of the colonial era. Too tremendous to be up to the Museum, and rustic and simply present this Beitou hot spring resort in the history of the development of Taiwan and Japan can get a glimpse of the civil ceremony, where the associated with this. Here's why Taiwan Beitou and despite the greater Hot Springs has been noticeably questions why the color culture of hard, you can get a clue about. The museum itself was built with a unique form of expression ever wanted to, not surprisingly Japan was the colonial-era buildings.
