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 a little gem worth seeing - especially for people interested in the history and culture... More

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 fee

I went to the museum for class the other year, but this review is more for the Gift Shop. Just want to put out there that it offers a range of locally-made goods and items about Hawaiian culture that you might not be able to find at other places on the tourist road. There's a little something for everyone: games... More

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 was good, but what we really enjoyed the most was a approx. 45 minute video... 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 and the house. As another reviewer has mentioned, several of the items will soon need... More

Docent was very informative, small historic missionary house so it won't take more than 30-45 minutes. Good little side trip while you're in Lahaina. You can add the small Chinese museum entrance to your ticket for a small upcharge. Go to the ( free ) period jail nearby too. Aloha !

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 he was happy to explain to us, and he was also very willing to tell...

First need to understand that there are stairs and a second floor staircase to navigate. Well presented with history, photos, furniture of the period. Interesting to see and appreciate the undertaking that has gone so well. Parking is near the house via the driveway. Park near the house.

The docents are energetic and enthusiastic, the house and its history are amazing and you should take it in but it needs some attention. Much of the house is now devoted to the gift shop and bookstore and the exhibits are beginning to show their age and wear. The open air display of Mr. Bailey's oil paintings is a real... More
