“Tour of house and studio”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

Having visited Hahndorf many times over the years I didn't realize that Cedars was there.

Wonderful history of an amazing man and the volunteer staff were very nice and we had a great tour (5 elderly ladies on a break).

Thank you we will certainly bring visitors back.

“A Wonderful Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

We recently spent a couple of very memorable hours at 'The Cedars'. We toured the home of Sir Hans Heysen hearing stories of the family and visitors to the house. We viewed the wonderful original belongings, furniture and paintings. The studio on the hill was fascinating and it was easy to see where the inspiration for the wonderful works of art had come from. This is a 'must see' for all lovers of fine art and those fascinated by Australian history.

Every south Australian should visit sir Hans heysen's home and studio. Here is a perfectly kept and well run museum showing a very personal side of an important aspect of our state's history.

“A must-see for art lovers, naturalists, gardeners or heritage buffs”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

Even those without much knowledge of art would be familiar with Hans Heysen's art (with a bit of reminding), depicting the Australian bush . A tour of his former home "The Cedars" is of interest to anyone who likes art, nature, gardens or Australian heritage architecture. Make sure you get there by 3pm to make the last tour. The current exhibition of his daughter Nora's work is also fantastic.

“Wonderful reminder of the artist and unspoilt times”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2013 via mobile

Lovely to step away from the tourist trap of Hahndorf and appreciate life back in the early 1900s. Beautiful setting - easy to see how Hans Heysen fell in love with the area and was inspired. Fabulous art and a great guided tour by Jill. A must do.
