We are happy to learn, that the paintings in the collection lived up to your expectations and to learn that you enjoyed the museum. I will make sure to pass on your kind words about the 'Focus' hanging to the curatorial team behind it.

If you only have one reason to go to the museum, it should be "Flowers in the garden" painted by P.S. Krøyer. The rest is plusses.

To me this museum is the core of Skagen, exhibiting the most famous paintings made of the artists that probably were the people responsible for making Skagen so well known. The old part of the museum is packed with paintings, making the exhibition overwhelming, but...More

I realize the museum is closed until May. I will be visiting in July, and need to know the entry price for a grant application. I have not been able to find this on the museum website. I'm sure it is there, I think I found it once, but can't find it again. Thanks. Betty
