Beitou Hot Spring Museum, Taipei

(320+ 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.

  • 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.
  • Lots of cool history on the area and culture during the Japanese colonial period. The building itself is nice to walk through and explore as well. Should take about 30-40 mins.
  • Free entry, nice staff , see old bathing pool and not much else
