Beitou Hot Spring Museum, Taipei

(3.8/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • 博物馆介绍的是北投当地的温泉历史和博物馆这桩建筑的历史介绍,老洋房虽然是翻新过的,但还是按照原有的面貌进行的重新整修。博物馆是免费开放的。 进馆需要换鞋,馆内提供拖鞋。  more »
  • 鄰近捷運站, 週邊環境尚算舒適優美, 但館內看的東西其實不多, 但是免費的地方不能太多要求, 如到新北投浸溫泉去, 則無妨順道一訪  more »
  • Located on the slope on the way to hell Valley from the xinbeitou MRT. Easy hot springs visit free of charge dropped in passing. Also around slippers shoes in a shoe box, feel Japan bath and tatami resting place exhibition, it shouldn't take long.
