I have wanted to go to this museum for a very long time. I was not disappointed. The Kroyer works (and others) were numerous and fascinating. My mom and daughter were eager to go to supper, but I asked them to wait 30 minutes so I could give it the proper time. What a treasure.

As an American Artist, I really enjoyed learning the history of the colony of Skagen Painters who lived & painted here. Very nice Museum and a must see if you are in the area of Skagen, Denmark. Thank You!

Too expensive - but has all the famous "Skagen" painting you want to see. The garden is also cosy and the staff friendly.

I do not like being asked "Where are you from" when you buy a ticket. I even like less when they try twice after you say that we just want to see the museum. Also, they do not allow to keep handbags... The Danish painters failed to paint the beautiful Skagen sky... The Dutch painters got it!. Kroyer & Co painted themselves. The museum was highly recommended by Danish friends and colleagues. Although nice, we expected a bit more. Very commercialized place. And 90 DKK for an entry ticket is too much. For this ticket price you can see the world-famous Leopold collection (Klimt, Schiele, Kokoschka) in Vienna.

this museum located on the very top of Denmark is something you never forget once you have been there

this old"fisher" village got attention from skandinavian painters and artists more than 100 years ago due to the special blue light -you can experience it when you shoot photos without a good UV-filter on your camera

this typical danish brick building with a nice garden around invites for a stay

but first of all enjoy the paintings reflecting true impressions of the beginning of the 20 century
where hard working fisherman met sofisticated town people

reflect over everyday life then wonderfully reproduced in masterpieces of paintings
