We bought the ticket together with the tickets for Anchers house and Skagen museum. These were great, and maybe we were so fascinated by them, that the visit to Drachmann's house could not match those impressions. As a museum it is small, and you need to know about the writer to take full advantage of the visit. He was a... More

We did a bus tour of Skagen, Denmark. Many of the exteriors of houses were almost the same. Travel took days back when Skagen was in its hay day. They couldn't go to a Menard's and purchase a variety of materials thus many places were similar.

This was such a great experience. Being able to visit the home of one of my favorite Danish Painter / Poets was a treat. It's like Holger Drachmann just stepped out. His coats and hats are still there. His studio looks like he just left it. A must see in Skagen.

You can almost feel the presence of the great painter and writer Holger Drachmann when you walk round his house, looking at Things that belonged to him. Drachmann was a very fascinatiuing character. And now you can buy a combi-ticket that includes Skagens Museum, Anchers House and Drachmanns House.

Helgar Drachmann and his last wife Sophie found an old bakery and turned it into a Danish Arts and Crafts gem. Where Michael and Anna Ancher lived in a warm traditional Danish home with a huge studio added on, the Drachmanns made their home itself a work of art. Basically, they added a large airy studio onto the old bakery... More

Went to the famous poet and painter Drachmanns house, after Anchers house in Skagen. It couldn't live up to the experience of Anchers house, but cozy it was. Not a must when in Skagen.

We were hesitant about visiting, this being our last morning in Skagen, and it being quite a long walk from our hotel, and there not being much time before catching the train(s) to the airport in Aalborg. Even so, since our ticket from the previous day to the Skagens Museum covered this house also, we decided to take the opportunity.... More

During our stay in Skagen we visited Drachman's House, the home of the famous Danish painter and author. He is associated with the colony of artists known as the Skagen Painters although his painting took second place to his writing. He settled in Skagen, and after his death in 1908 his home became a museum. We enjoyed the teachings of... More

Well preserved living quarters. Very authentic, especially the living room area, showing that music and painting were his main interest. Tip :pur hase a combination ticket, for 3 different museums.
