If you have folks who are older and not able to walk a lot this is a great little place to spend some time. Even my husband and I liked it. Not a lot there but an interesting part of the history behind Taiwan.

This is a small museum (rather a Japanese traditional house) next to Grand View Hotel in Beitou. If you're staying at the hotel, try to visit. It will take just 30 minutes. Beautiful garden and building.

This is another small Japanese style building. It is pretty small but nice to view. The best way to visit this museum is to have a japanese lunch meal here.
