  • We got access with the Maui Value Pass, otherwise it costs $7 each (Jan 2016). The Wikipedia page tells most of what's here. It was a boarding school for girls for 10 years or so (1837-47), then it was Bailey's own home after he bought it from the Hawaiian Crown in 1850, and he lived there about 50 years. There are 100 exhibits of Bailey's landscape art, otherwise it's a mishmash of exhibits from about that era. It was pleasant, but small. We saw no evidence of how it was used as a school. We saw the canoe, Duke's surfboard and the Kamapua'a statue, but none of it seemed particularly remarkable. The volunteers/staff weren't very knowledgeable, or maybe we visited too near closing time. Much more interesting was the garden park further up Main Street in Iao Valley. Great picnic stop. Some locals came around with gigantic car stereos, I had to turn on the car alarm until they would go away!
  • Great shopping, largest selection of Hawaiiana books on the Island, the cutest feather themed holiday ornaments
  • what amazing history this place has. I was left with goosebumps all over. its a must see for shure
