  • It is really a long time ago I last been on the Skagen Museum. Have not been there for many years and not at all after they built to. The premises are delicious and fluffy. The exhibition speaks for itself. A must-see if you either haven't seen the exhibition before. Otherwise it can easily tolerate a repeat. In the new addition changes the exhibition out from time film second, cans are always a little new. In the GL. part hangs all the classics Summer evening by Skagen, Praising St. his burner on Skagen Beach and others.

  • Great experience of seeing the beautiful pictures from Skagen's artist colony. Super beautiful building with natural light, which makes the images takes care in the best possible way out! The staff were very friendly and helpful. Price 100 kr for adults and 75 kr for young people under 27 years.

  • Relax with a visit to the beautiful museum with many incredibly beautiful paintings. Sit on the bench and let you impress by how beautiful the works are. It is easy to understand why they may achieve completely insane prices at auctions.

  • The art in this museum is fantastic, beautiful paintings of the local area and a lot more. Our family visit was ruined by one intendent who kept following us around on the verge of harassment. After spending time in the children's drawing area, he finally insinuated that we had stolen the pencil sharpener, clearly visible on the windowsill. After that I had enough and decided to leave, after just 20 minutes. An awful shame that one person ruined this for us, hopefully you will not have the same experience.
  • Excellent. Well worth a visit.
  • I was told by many to visit this museum, and I finally did it this summer: I managed to see most of it, and I must say the paintings were really incredible! I really hope to go back there soon. It really deserves a visit!
  • Beautiful museum and outstanding art.
  • Interesting and well presented exhibition. The staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. The exhibition changes sometimes due to the large collection and limited presentation area, so revisiting this museum is a rewarding experience.
