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!

A nice spot to stop and see what early life on the island was like. Well laid out displays and informative staff. Worth the visit and admission if you are into historical sites and information. Not bad gift shop also.

The Bailey house is set among a yard filled with a tropical plants, flowers, and trees. Inside the museum be taken back to another era when women spent their time preparing themselves for life as young christian ladies. The house is filled with Hawaiian and missionary items from a by gone time. Be sure to stop and browse the large... More

We combined this visit with Iao Valley and it was perfect. A small museum but packed with a lot of history if you get the right person to discuss the home and family with. We did and it was great. Especially if you have kids on your trip - take them here for an hour - it is true history.
