  • Great photos of the famous Skagen painters. Enjoy the beautiful pictures in beautiful surroundings. After renovations appears images in beautiful frames.

  • 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.
