A small museum that was a residence at one time. The building is well maintained but the grounds need some TLC. This is a two story building without an elevator. There is a rather lengthy documentary on how Hawaii was founded and the processes that...More

We stopped at the Bailey House on our way elsewhere and were enthralled by its history and the artifacts in its small collection. Docents shared their wealth of information, and a one-hour video provided a fascinating, detailed history of the Hawaiian islands. The place is...More

A lot of artifacts from pre-US territory/state times as well as antique furniture. Includes pictures painted by Mr. Bailey. Amazing amount of talent shown. Film on political history of Hawaii quite informative.

Stopped because of title on map provided. It was not well organized or interesting especially for my children who are generally very enamored by history and museums. The highlight was the video of political history playing. Not worth the stop or feeMore

We bought a museum passport and this is one of four museums on Maui that charge a admission fee. It's a good value to buy the passport for $16 each. The Bailey house is loaded with furniture and other items from times past. That part...More

Here is more than just a missionary's impact on hawaiian history. Besides the imported furniture, clothing and other implanted European culture, Bailey House has many pre-contact items that are also respectfully displayed. Not expensive to visit, it's well worth dropping in, walking through the grounds...More

The house is the restoration of a missionary residence from the mid-1800s. We were greeted enthusiastically by the attendant - one fee gets you into a number of different museums on Maui, and there are all kinds of discounts (Hawaiian native, military, senior, etc.), which...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.
