«An Angel’sKiss» is an exhibition worth seeing, especially in these times during the pandemic. «Sick girls in Nordic art» is the subtitle. Edvard Munch’s works are representative, fantastic and well known. Together with the Skagen painters, the exhibition is touching and well curated.

A must see experience with multiple items to watch - from the original Skagen painters to more themed exhibition. The light at the top of Denmark is remarkable - and very exposed through the paintings at this museum

Skagen is known for its art. No wonder, the light is amazing. Skagen Museum showcases paintings mainly from the early 20th century, providing a fascinating insight into the lives of the people in the past.

The current exhibition of works by Ann Anker was better than expected. Well arraged in seven different schemes, well done museum curator. But I discovered some new works by the master himself, P S Kroyer. My favourite was The Little Girl.

Well told story of the group of painters that captured the beautiful lightsome 130 years ago.
All of their art is beautiful, but i particularly enjoy the scenes from everyday life along the beaches.
Ques to get in in the middle of summer, but absolutely worth the wait.

We visited the Skagens Museum during a Viking cruise excursion and learned so much about the artists and history of the area while listening to the guide describe the beautiful works of art. Summer evening on Skagen Sanderstrand, 1893, was my favorite painting.

We have never been here before and didn't know anything about it but we know about the famous paintings from skagen.

I was impressed by the Anna Ancher exhibition. Corona in Denmark means less people and more time to look at paintings. The lighting and shadows in some of her paintings are mesmerizing and I could look at them for a long time, very impressive. The golden sunsets reflected through the windows gave of warmth and in this cold summer is something I needed.

I also enjoyed the pastels around the various finished works that highlights the attempts and experiments that led up to a finished work. For example, over picture had a baby in her mother's arm and be the various attempts to perfect the head. In today's world of Instagram perfect, it is great to see all the various attempts along with the finished work.

The other part of the museum had the more classical known works and the stories around the various artists and their relationships and works

I can recommend a visit

It is an amazingly beautiful museum. For all the art lovers, this museum is definitely something that is truly good. It is not as big as the museums in Vienna, however, the art there is extremely beautiful and you can honestly just mesmerize the paintings for such a long time and get lost in all their breathtaking view. Highly recommend for all the tourists out there, my international friends really enjoyed it and it was a really good experience for all of us.

It's a beautiful museum with amazing paintings. The problem is lack of consideration for the visitors. One person selling tickets and a enormours queue, where people stood outside, very close to each other, for 45 minutes to buy a ticket. When we finally got our ticket (after waiting 45 min in the queue) we asked if we can use it an hour later due to a reservation in a restaurant nearby. The reply was "yes, but you have to be in queue again". When asked the reason, the answer was "kø kulture" (queue culture)... which makes no sense when we already been 45 minutes in a queue and then at to be in it again, in the same and only one where people buy tickets, but just to be able to enter.
Makes zero sense.
