I'm a bit biased being on the Board of a local museum in Ojai. I found the Bailey House, buildings, grounds and Duke surfboard display quite interesting. The display on Duke, the King of surfboarding, with his board, a nearby local boat, both from early 1900's were quite informative. The grounds were lovely. The home with its collection of Cook era displays and Bailey original artwork were amazing and educating. To see how the home had expanded over its life was interesting as you learn how life molded itsself to its existence over the years. Also, it is right on the way to Iao Valley so no special trip needed. Please support your local museums, they are staffed by history loving volunteers who are more than happy to answer questions, as were the three folks at Bailey House. Mahalo.

this is quite a small museum, two small rooms upstairs and 3 or 4 small rooms downstairs. it has odds and ends of Hawaiian heritage, most of which is not very consequential or interesting to me. This is not at all like the Bishop museum on Oahu. Even if someone was fascinated, it is hard to see how one could spend more than 30 minutes there. And if one is not fascinated, 10 minutes is more like it. I would skip it if i had a chance to do the day over. There are much more interesting things to look at or do in Maui.
