Beautiful grounds

They were between exhibits when we visited so I cannot share much about the museum but the grounds are lovely and if you get lucky you might catch an art craft demo on the grounds.

The day we visited, none of the artists were working in the studios. Unfortunately, the exhibition area was closed as well. There is a small history room and gallery shop within the center. The grounds are beautiful and it was a nice way to spend an hour. There is no cost to enter the estate and parking is free.

The Hui No'eau Visual Arts center in Makawao is truly a treasure for visitors to Maui and residents alike. The gardens, the grounds and the historic house are not to be missed. The art exhibits are constantly changing and you can catch the latest work of some of Maui's best artists on exhibit there. There is a gift shop that... More

What a delight! This expansive estate is representative of a bygone era. Truly magnificent Estate home and grounds are lovely and the massive trees that are there are spectacular. We enjoyed the gallery and the friendly staff. You can buy small canvases and create your own artwork in a room next to the gallery filled with amazing light.

This is our third visit to the Hui and we would recommend it to anyone at all interested in pursuing/promoting arts! Staff is most knowledgable and the grounds well signed(trees etc.) Annual fundraiser with generous donors is especially a fun event!

Even if you are not into art it is worth a visit. The grounds are amazing as is the house. Huge old trees and beautiful big yard looking down to the ocean. The people in the main house and the pottery workshop are friendly.

Visiting Maui for the first time, we expected to visit and do all the normal must do excursions. However, a rainy day sent us to this art center and we are glad we went. We were able to watch Evan create a glass seashell from beginning to end. He was generous to share his story and creative processes with us... More

Wonderful adventure on Maui. Each time we come to Maui we try to find a new treat to visit. This year our best find was the Hui No'eau Visual Arts Center in Makawao. Our goal was to watch the glass blowing demonstration by artist Evan Schauss. It was beyond our expectations. Evan was patient with our questions and a delight... More

A real functioning art centre for ceramics and glassblowing, both actively at work when we went. Baldwin House has an interesting history of its own. Ethel Baldwin was no mean silversmith, but unfortunately we not able to see her work when we went this second time: you may have better luck. House and gardens a pleasant place to visit and... More

We were between the checkout at our timeshare and dinner at Mama's before our flight. The center is about 30 minutes from the main road through lovely plantation country. The main house has been restored and is beautiful, there is a small historical display of the plantation and the Baldwin family. The center provides art education for the children of... More
