The Bailey House Museum is well maintained with original oil paintings by Edward Bailey on display. There is also an amazing display of Hawai'ian artifacts including Duke Kahanamoku's 1919 Redwood Surfboard. There are so many other interesting collections on display. There is a lovely outdoor grassed area for the children to play near the building where a 2 hour film... More

We habe driven by the Bailey house many times in our 12 years of coming to Maui and finally went in. For $5 very worth it. House goes back to 1840's, with some really interesting waitings of undeveloped Maui from the late 19th century by Mr. Bailey, some interesting history of the Kings of Hawaii and a big selection of...

There are several artifacts of the native Hawaiian culture, but overall, this stop won't take much time.

The Bailey House Museum is on the road near Iao Valley and is a short drive from Kahalui. It has a number of interesting artifacts ranging from a 200 year old petroglyph to a magnificent table made for General Grant. There is a room dedicated to the Hawaiian kings and queens and another showcasing daily life in the missionary period.... More

My daughter and I stopped here because we drove by and thought it might be interesting. It was! There is a lot of history here and you really get a taste of life in the old days.

We had purchased the Passport to the Past Maui museum pass when visiting the Sugar Museum, because it's price was just a slight premium over the Sugar Museum admission cost. That turned out to be a great decision as it allowed us to see this museum and two others basically for free. This one was, for us, the highlight primarily... More

This window on the lives of the original missionaries settling in Hawaii, is time well spent. It is not grandiose or impressive, but it does a good job of presenting the story in an authentic building

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.
