Baily House Museum

Also known as Old Bailey House, this museum of Hawaiian history located in Wailuku on the island of Maui is owned and operated by the Maui Historical Society. Originally a mission home built in 1833 on the site of the Royal compound of Kahekili, the last ruling chief of Maui, it served as the Mission station for the Wailuku Female Seminary for Girls until around 1847. Later it was occupied by Edward Bailey and his family until 1888 when its gardens were laid with native Hawaiian and missionary-era plants. The Museum has Hawaiian artifacts, missionary furnishings, paintings by Edward Bailey. Showcasing permanent, temporary and traveling exhibitions the Historical Society offers guided and school tours along with varied programs including classes, lectures and live performances.
