We visited here after going to the Anchers' house, and, together with this house, it gives a really good sense of the lives and work of the Skagen artists group of the late 19th and early 20th century. The museum is in an attractive building,...More

Worth a visit since its what Skagen is famous for; some quality art but visit the artists' houses as well for a fuller feel for their life.

Here you'll find som of the most iconic artworks by the Skagen painters active in late 19th and early 20th centuries. Looking at some of these paintings you can really get the sense of how life was in the Skagen environment some 100 years ago.
