After a relaxing soak in the thermal baths of Beitou Hot Springs, head to the nearby museum that shares a similar name. The Euro-Japanese-style building was built during Taipei’s occupation and once served as the main access to Beitou’s public bath.
In true Japanese style, visitors are asked to remove their shoes before exploring the network of 12 rooms that make up this popular attraction. Once the site of the largest bathhouse in Asia, the museum’s second floor is now home to an exhibition area that showcases articles, books, photographs and the history of the famous hot springs.
The museum is located at No. 2 Zhongshan Road in the Beitou District of Taipei City. It is open from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. daily, and it is free to enter. The museum is within walking distance of Xinbeitou Station and the Taipei Metro.
