A Great Mini-Museum to see just enough of the local history to get a flair for where you and and the importance of the historical places.

During a recent stay in Maui, we discovered that the Bailey House was hosting their annual "Moonlight Mele", an evening of genuine Hawaiian music and dance, and decided at the last minute to attend. What a great decision! Young children dancers from a local school opened the evening and were absolutely delightful. Then the two main acts took the stage,... More

This was an unexpected side trip. It was a very small exhibit. The tour guide was inexperienced but informative. Nice views.

My husband and I wanted an enriching and educational experience on our vacation in Maui and we're so happy to have stumbled upon the Bailey House and their fantastic tour guide, Kiale. He was a wealth of knowledge and very passionate about Hawaiian history and heritage. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and subsequently purchased several books each. Than you, Bailey... More

You can easily go through this museum on your own and spend as much time as you need. The grounds and little shop are also very quaint. If you are planning to go to... More

The senior lady guide knew her stuff, and this museum clearly supported the Christian aspect of the missionaries work , and the Hawaiian Monarchy who converted the country to Christianity. We could take photos, ask questions and get answers unlike in Missions Houses in Honolulu, and there was a very good historical film explaining the royal role and removal, and... More
