This is a nice small museum housing some interesting Hawaiian artifacts including a large display of snail shells of extinct species, Bailey's original artwork, and many artifacts from the Polynesian culture. Gift shop has small number of interesting souvenirs.

This little museum is amazing! It is full of interesting artefacts and we could have easily spent over an hour inside. Unfortunately, we were with a tour group and had to move. If we had stayed nearby, we would have gone back for another visit.

The video was a little too long to sit through all of it, but it was still interesting learing more about the early Hawaiians and the Missionaries that converted the natives to Christianity. The artifacts were from very early inhabitants and from the 1800's. Worth...More

Bought the Maui Value pass and the museum was included. The house is nice, has a lot of history but the information was not great and nothing seem to follow a time line.

We used this to fill an hour or so before we had to be at the airport but it was very much better than expected! The staff were lovely and explained enough so you could go round yourself. A good ( but too long!) video...More

Visited here with friends. Bought a pass at the Sugar Museum that got us in for free and other places. Lovely place with historical photos and information all over. Worth your time to see with nice staff

I was pleasantly surprised. I have toured many old house/museums across the US. But this one might be the best one I've seen. I was surprised by the variety of Hawaiian artifacts, including tools, weapons and even part of a land snail collection. There are...More

This was one of the museums on a pass that we purchased - well worth the money if you like history. We enjoyed the quaint home and the film. We are seniors and to get to every part of the home there are narrow stairs...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.
