Skagens Museum, Skagen

4.2
Skagens Museum exhibits naturalistic and plein air paintings by the late 19th-century members of the colony of Skagen painters. The main museum was founded by local businessmen and by the painters themselves in 1908. In addition to the main museum, you can visit the preserved homes of some of the artists, Anchers Hus and Drachmanns Hus. Both of these houses look exactly as if the artists are still living there. Combined, the three venues house more than 9,000 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' residence.

  • A wonderful collection and guiding through the pictures and history of the so called 'Skagen-artists'. Strongly recommended!
  • A good museum. Good weekend holidays
  • 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.
  • Nice museum with many beautiful painting.
