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.

  • 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.
