“must go”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

Make a trip down to Beitou Hot Spring Museum after the Geothermal Valley. It's just along the way, and it's free! nice place to look around, and will definitely learn a lot about the history of hot spring in Taipei. It's very organised over there. Staffs will lead you to put your shoes/slippers in the cupboard provided, and wear their slippers there to walk around. Will get to see about how the old films were made in Taipei too. Interesting place. Walk around to take lots of pictures!

Old folks around are very proud of their attractions, two of them even invited us to go to one of the attractions (Plum Garden) to take a look. Note that this place is close on Mondays, just like other places around. :)

“Free museum, good for 30 min visit”
Reviewed 8 May 2014

Stop by this museum on your way to enjoying the hot springs. It's free admission, so one can't really complain about its size. You will be asked to leave your shoes behind in unsecured lockers and to don slippers to walk through this museum. The museum is a preserved bathhouse with Chinese and English signs describing its history. There are a couple of places where you can take 1-2 nice pictures, and that's about it. Worth it if you're going to Beitou anyway for the hot springs, but not worth a trip specifically to come out and see the museum.

“Small museum: very crowded on Sundays”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

I wasn't so impressed by this place, although I guess it is interesting if you happen to have a penchant for hot springs. Generally Beitou seems to be a place which appeals much more to the locals than to foreigners: personally I prefer Tamsui as a day trip from central Taipei.

“Small museum.”
Reviewed 13 April 2014

Decided to stop in New Beitou after spending the morning in Tamshui. The walk to the museum from the station was 10-15 minutes on the alongside a park (follow the signs).

The Japanese tradition of removing your shoes is still in practice here as you will be instructed by the guides as you enter the museum. To your left are wooden "lockers" with slippers and where you must place your shoes - keys are used here, unlike many places in Japan.

Restrooms are downstairs. Plastic slippers for men and women are provided - you swap your regular slippers with the plastic ones when you enter the restroom.

It takes 30 minutes or less to see everything. Brochures are located near the entrance which explain the history of the structure.
