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

If you like history and have the time, this is a good one to see. Elderly giving the background of home was very interesting. Mission school that served a few purposes over the years. They have been able to collect a few artifacts that are interesting to see.

We loved the Bailey House. Enjoyed speaking with the curators and all the visitors. We also were privileged to meet with some school kids who were visiting and were greeted with Aloha!

Beautiful grounds, interesting history of early Hawaii and schooling for women. Lots of events held here throughout the year, so plan your visit around one of the music and craft events.

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.
