Beitou Hot Spring Museum, Taipei

3.9
#4 of 36 in Museums in Taipei
Specialty Museum 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.

  • After taking off your shoes, you can enter for free and enjoy the short visit. Relevant information about the japanese influence on the hot spring culture. Worth a look before having a bath!
  • Although you have to check in your shoes you're given slippers and can peruse as long as you want through this Seminole Taiwan Onsen. Reading through the history contained within the various placards and displays of the museum it was clear to see how Taiwan is so Japanese friendly where is mainland China is not from a historical perspective
  • very historical building. good area to walk around, weekend is no good. overly crowded.
  • Want to learn a bit about this area's development, come here for a short visit. Like the structure! Free admission!
  • It is a very good place to learn about the history of the hot spring culture in Beitou. You can also walk up the hill to visit the Hot Spring Valley and experience the misty fog in the air.
