Despite protests from my young nephews, I couldn't help getting tickets to visit The Beitou Hot Springs Museum which was Taiwan’s first public bath house in 1913 during the Japanese occupation.
The Beitou Hot Springs Museum is a Victorian-style building which is built of red bricks and wooden weather boards. The museum is divided into 2 storeys. On the ground floor visitors will see the public bath, which is no longer in use, with an introduction to the hot springs' history,
We have to remove our shoes and change into slippers here so that we would not damage the ancient floor boards.
Love this huge Japanese tatami-floor recreation area where people used to chill out after their hot baths. The museum was quite empty on a weekend.
The wooden floor boards were very old and there seems no end to the long corridor. :)
The water is drained off. The historical bath pool and hot spring bath facilities that were used back in old days were no longer in use.
What can we find at the end of this long corridor?
Your own bath tub with or without a good view! :P
This was an old movie room where the patrons could watch black and white movies. Too bad the old projector is no longer working.
