Loved the setting and the art. Go while you are in Skagen. The exhibits don't change very often, however, it is a wonderful small museum. The cafe wasn't bad either.

When we visited there was an exhibition by Laurits Tuxen. Interesting. Some paintings of other Skagen artists were also on display but not that many as the museum is quite small. I expected to see more of the "Skagen light". Nevertheless a positive experience. Nice shop and café.

When in Skagen this is a must, good for kids too, and with a nice little cafe in the garden. Spend a couple of hours here, art and nature - that´s what Skagen and the museum is about.

No words necessary. Skagen painters are world-famous! First you take the walk to Grenen and experience the Northern light of Skagen, then lunch at Brøndums with Herring, beer and snaps. Then go to the Skagen Museum - and reveal that they captured the magnificent scenery!

Surprising nice experience to find this little art museum in the northern tip of Denmark. It caps our day trip to Skagen after a nice time at the beach and a great time at the beach. Many thanks to my host to take time to show us around in Skagen.

I first came across "Skagen paintings" at AROS Museum in Aarhus a few years ago during a conference trip. Now I go there every year and visit AROS everytime, mostly because of those paintings. This year we visited Skagen as a family and went to the Skagen Museum. The building of the museum is itself beautiful with a garden in... More

Skagen has one of the most beautifull lights. Sea can colour in shades of blue and gray you've never seen before. This has inspired many artists and a small amount of paintings can be seen in the Skagen Museum.

The light in Skagen has attracted some great artists through time, and it is very interesting to see how they manage to do that. Also the portraits of people are great.
