For such a small place, it wows me how much there is here. Maui history encapsulated and presented in so many ways. The folks here do a great job of telling the story of this island, lovingly and with respect. Even if you go ten times, something new will find you.

This was not near the same experience as the Baldwin house. It was so converted only the upstairs was truly recognizable as a house. The downstairs was mostly gift shop and sign in.

I enjoyed this small museum--especially as A) I got on a to a (short) tour w/an enthusiastic guide; and B) my who-would-be-quite-bored husband needed to go sunglasses shopping prior to our visit to Iao State Park. I would recommend to those passing by/in the area, but not sure it'd meet the expectations of those making a special trip for it.

Small collection of native Hawaiian things. More reading than artifacts but good history information. Focus on missionaries which we had not seen in other places. Nice stop if you are in the area.

Nice and well-done museum on the history of Hawaii. Beautiful grounds, trees and buildings on the way to Io Needle Park. The gift shop is very nice, bought some jellies there.

Worth the time to see, showcases the history of the early missionary families on the island and native culture. If you are a history buff you'll enjoy stopping in and learning about the families who pioneered on Maui, and see this home where they lived and worked. Historically oriented gift shop onsite to browse through.

The Bailey House Museum is small, and the building, although old, was nondescript. Their collection of pre-missionary artifacts is quite nice, and their video on the political history of the islands gives a less white-washed version then you normally see.

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
