  • A must- loved the art. The style of the art hanging/layout was really neat, different from other big art galleries. The cafe was also really nice.  more »
  • We had chosen to take on the Skagen Museum to view ceramics exhibition before it ended. We got the Bell 11.05 and were told that we could manage to make the tour, which had just begun. Fine service! And it was an incredibly exciting tour with lots of good information from rundviseren. She was really good at telling. And as always, the Museum was an experience. Excellent nice day in Skagen!

  • A wonderful collection and guiding through the pictures and history of the so called 'Skagen-artists'. Strongly recommended!
  • An interesting museum with some fantastic artwork from local artists.
  • 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.
