The Hui is a treasure not to be missed. A beautiful drive on Baldwin Ave leads you to this historic place. Beautiful grounds and the art exhibits and wonderful display of local art crafts at the gift shop are worth the trip. Ongoing classes to learn many disiplines of art are available here as well.

We enjoyed our visit to this arts center very much. The exhibit on the history of the site was very interesting and the current art exhibitions were really wonderful. Exploring the grounds and the studios was awesome and the jewelry instructor took time to speak with us and tell us more about the center. What amazing studios and facilities for... More

The day we visited, none of the artists were working in the studios. Unfortunately, the exhibition area was closed as well. There is a small history room and gallery shop within the center. The grounds are beautiful and it was a nice way to spend an hour. There is no cost to enter the estate and parking is free.
