“Nice museum in the north”
Reviewed July 12, 2014 via mobile

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.

“Worth spending a whole day”
Reviewed June 16, 2014

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 the middle. They had the Laurits Tuxen exhibition, which was very good. But for me, nothing is more impressive and touching than the P.S. Kroyer and V. Johansen paintings. Everything about those paintings seem more real than the reality. You should definitely take your time during your visit and enjoy it more than once; may be take a break and have some coffee and rhubarb pie in the garden and then come back in. I think it's worth visiting Skagen just for this museum.

“play of light”
Reviewed May 29, 2014

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.
