  • It was the first time we visited the Skagen museum. The exhibits were interesting and gave an insight into the artist's life at Skagen. However, we had expected more paintings.

  • It contains pictures of the famous school of painting that developed in Denmark, but I thought it was somewhat expensive

  • Do go and see the museum of the Skagen painters. Denmark's foremost impressionist Søren Krøyer's masterpieces is on display here together with rising star Anna Ancher's and a handful of other painters...  more »

  • Good service. The best of Danish artists.
  • I was not aware of this gem before visiting Skagen. The paintings, from the Skagen School are wonderful, naturalistic depictions of Skagen life in Victorian times. Displayed in the traditional manner with good light.
  • Top coffee and lunch at this nice garden cafe.
  • Fantastic place that you need to visit.
  • 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.
