Skagens Museum, Skagen

4.2
Skagens Museum exhibits naturalistic and plein air paintings by the late 19th century members of the colony of Skagen painters. The museum was founded in a local hotel in 1928 and houses more than 1,800 works of art. See the favorite subjects of Skagen artists, such as fishermen at work, fishermen's cottages, landscapes, and views into the artists' social life. Taste a homemade cake at the cafe in the Garden House, which for a while served as artists' summer residence. The dining room of the hotel features period furniture designed by Maria Krøyer and portraits of artists that have been donated to the hotel owner.

  • This excellent museum grows all the time. New paintings by the famous Skagen Painters are collected and exhibited every year. You will never get tired of visiting this place.  more »
  • Skagens Museum's own collection of works from the famous artist colony in 1800 century and changing exhibitions on the finest show combines several worlds, so that visitors can not avoid going uplifted and wiser away. A cosy museum with great art from a bygone era. The pictures speak for themselves, but the text and the written stories in exhibitions brochures promises the experience. Truly recommendable. We spent almost 3 hours on a review, and would like to come again.

  • The panting exhibition from p. S. Krøyer, Michale anchersen, were just fine, even though some of the paintings I were looking for were stored away, will be coming back again for sure.
  • Free guided tour did make me understand the history behind the paintings.
  • This is the best art museum I've visited! Astonishing paintings in a grest context!
  • A little boring and not a great deal to see for your 100kr
  • Fantastic paintings. Small and manageable museum
