“Peaceful view of history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Lots of interesting artifacts in the home of a missionary with diverse interests. Ask questions of the staff, and learn more about how Hawaii was when it took months to get there.

“January 25, 2013 Moonlight Concert”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

The moonlight concert was a real Hawaiian treat. Excellent music outside in perfect weather. A few patrons were distracting (not an event you want to bring a hyperactive child to), but on the whole a great experience.

“Display interesting blend of native and missionary cultures”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

Certainly the natives were not appreciative of the English missionaries who came to "save" them, but the Bailey family contributed in more ways than just religious conversion. This informative museum on beautifull-kept grounds is a great learning experience for young and not-so-young. It is not a large establishment, and a couple of hours is more than sufficient.
Well worth the small admission fee!

“diane E”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

Visiting the Bailey Museum was a really enjoyable addition to our trip. The home and the history was wonderful. The Bailey home is on a beautiful site. The kind of home you can imagine living in, in years past.
Jake, the docent has a wonderful way of sharing the history of the this place and of ancient history on the island of Maui.
Next,
continue up the hill to Ioa Valley. Its is quite amazing! A wonderful hike into the green, lush forests. Very safe, can take your children.

“Excellent adventure into Hawaiian culture”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

This is a small but excellent insight into Hawaiian culture. Jake, our docent, has a real passion for his Hawaiian history. So much infformation inside and out. Well worth the time and trip. Look for the signs on road to Iao Valley.
