The house itself and the written history presented are more interesting than the artifacts. One of the best things of the museum is that you get a free ticket to the Wo Hing Chinese museum down the block.

This is a difficult review to write. What does a Five Star rating mean? I gave the Eiffel Tower in Paris a five star rating. Now I am giving the Bailey House Museum the same rating. I don't believe that I am being inconsistent. Most people who go to Paris ought to see the Eiffel Tower. But not everyone. It... More

Very friendly and helpful staff with genuine aloha spirit; an old missionary house/school with lovely grounds and a good self-guided garden/plant tour. Some unique old Hawaiian artifacts add to the visitor experience. Informative labels and guides!

If you have time to stop at a very nice little museum, this is a must see. Its a nice stop before or after seeing the Iao valley since its kinda on the way. It also has a nice little gift shop and the staff is very informative.

A good place to learn about early contact between western and Hawaiian cultures. You can walk all over and get a good grasp on how life was.

If you are on an extended vacation to Maui and are looking to hit all the historical sites, then this would be one that you should visit. The history of the house and what it represents is interesting. It is fun to walk through the house and read all the information and see the artifacts. We live in Nashville and... More

There is history in the Bailey House and I enjoyed reading it. There was just not much else you could do. We only visited it because it was included in our Maui Value pass. If it was not in it we probably would have never went. We felt like they could have put something else in its place on the... More

This is a small museum but full of history of Hawaii. So glad we stopped. One of the women running the museum took the time to walk us through the main room of the house and share so much history with us. It was fantastic, even our two older kids enjoyed it. There is a lot of historical artifacts in... More

It was like walking back in time. Mr. Ed Bailey has truly captured the 'essence' of Maui thru his paintings! It's captivating! A must see when on Maui!
