The Beitou Hot Spring Museum is a fascinating place to visit when in Taipei. This museum about hot spring in Beitou is housed in a Victoria-style building. Initially, the building served various purposes, such as a police station, a reception house, and the Kuomintang headquarters. It was later declared as a class 3 historical site and then renovated to form the Beitou Hot Spring Museum in 1998. It is a two-story museum with the first floor housing a public path, information boards stating the hot springs history, appliances used in hot springs, hot spring facilities, Beitou stones, and bathing space. On the second floor, you will find six different exhibition halls giving details about the Beitou history. A lookout balcony, tatami floor recreational area, and a multimedia room are also found on the second floor of the museum.
