Celebrating 50 Years

Hahndorf Academy is celebrating 50 years as a museum and art gallery. In 1967 it was opened with an exhibition by Sir Hans Heysen on October 8 (Sir Hans Heysen's birthday).

We have a display of information that tells our story from the 60's when Walter Wotzke bought the building saving it from being demolished and being turned into a service station.

We are celebrating these 50 years and we thank all the people in the community who have supported the Hahndorf Academy, we appreciate everyone's passion for this beautiful iconic heritage building sitting proud on the Main Street of Hahndorf.
