Skagens Museum, Skagen
Categories: Specialty Museums, Museums
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.

Vi nød udstillingen Ophængt, hvor de mere end 400 malerier er "salonophæng", dvs tæt, stort set uden mellemrum og fra gulv til loft. Det er ret imponerende!

It's pretty impressive! The exhibition is even better, if you have done themselves a favour and Google a couple of painters and read up on the history behind the great paintings. The new building is brave, as it lies there and differs significantly from the surrounding yellow houses. Very friendly staff.show original
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.
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.
Many great paintings
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.
