Where Maui’s History Lives
Hale Hōʻikeʻike at the Bailey House, formerly called Bailey House Museum, run by the Maui Historical Society, is a historic building at 2375 Main Street, just a block west of Honoapiilani Highway, in Wailuku. Phone 808-244-3326. You will pass it on the way in or out of Iao Valley.
This Maui museum was originally the Wailuku Female Seminary for Hawaiian Girls from 1832 to 1849. It was Edward Bailey’s home until 1888. It has now been turned into a museum showcasing Hawaiian artifacts and culture, with paintings and furnishings of the 19th century. They charge an admission fee. The surrounding gardens contain plants of the missionary era. There is a gift shop in the building.
