The Skagen painters are world famous - in Denmark :-) !! A unique collection tells the story of a great era in Danish culture. She were lucky that there was a Willumsen exhibition, telling the story of the creation of "bathing children" - priceless!!

The exhibit space is dense with paintings so a trip to the balcony gives one the chance to view the higher up paintings. The light of Skagen was beautifully shown in many of the paintings. This is a must see when in Skagen.
