This was part of the Maui Value Pass which is why we stopped by. It was very cool, the guide was extremely friendly and knowledgeable and they had an artist recreating Hawaiian royalty portraits from old photographs. Very cool place and interesting look at Hawaii's...More

Visit this little house museum and take in the view ... see how the people were living about 100 years ago ... and how they didn't need 5,000-6,000 square feet to lead a happy, normal life! Loved it!

We spent an hour or so here. Interesting artefacts and stories. Also a couple of good video stands to watch. Centred around late 19th Century Hawai’i based in a former missionary’s house. We found this a really good stop and came away well satisfied.

A nice side trip after your visit to Iao state Park. This museum is a treasure trove of the cultural roots of Maui filled with artifacts, and all that is good about historical Societies museums. Beautiful picnic area, gardens and helpful staff. Great gift shop.

Stopped here on our way to the Ia’o needle. Built by the headmaster for a girls’ school in the 1840’s (can you imagine Maui in the 1840’s?) the buildings ooze history. Although not large, there are many rooms filled with artifacts and information on the...More

If I remember correctly it was about $8 per person for the Bailey house, but for $10 ea you could get a pass that also allows access to the small Chinese Society Museum. We saw both, worth the $10.
