We enjoyed the tour and learning about a slice of Maui history. We were impressed with how well organized the museum was.

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.

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.

We enjoyed an hour here on our way back from the Iao Needle / Park. Small but a lot of historical info on the old Hawaiian culture. We had seen the Ulelena show (awesome!) earlier and much of this museum had connections to that story. Allow about an hour. It is $5 for seniors and I think they are closed... More

It had interesting information about early Hawaiian life and religion, but not much about the family who once lived there.

Not only is the structure from a bygone era, there are displays throughout the rooms of furniture, apparel, utensils, pictures, and you can "see" what Maui was built on years ago. It is a peaceful setting, too.
