Beitou Hot Spring Museum, Taipei
(3.8/5 based on 240+ 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.

  • One day tour to Beitou Hot Spring Museum and the beautiful Japanese-style building attracts my attention. The museum is now listed as Taiwan's third-grade monuments. There are first floor and second f...  more »
  • 此為1913年為了提昇民眾享用北投溫泉而依日本靜岡伊豆山溫泉為藍圖而建造.於1998年維修後以國家三級古蹟重新開幕供大家參觀.免費參觀.一到玄關就要更換博物館免費提供的室內拖鞋.,別有一番風味 
  • 從新北投捷運站出站後步行約10分鐘,可以抵達該博物館,北投是台北的溫泉文化重鎮,館內會介紹日治時期所建立的溫泉設施、澡堂、文化等,建物本身也非常優美,看完後可順道在附近的溫泉飯店泡湯。
