Skagens Museum, Skagen
Skagens Museum exhibits naturalistic and plein air paintings by the late 19th-century members of the colony of Skagen painters. The main museum was founded by local businessmen and by the painters themselves in 1908. In addition to the main museum, you can visit the preserved homes of some of the artists, Anchers Hus and Drachmanns Hus. Both of these houses look exactly as if the artists are still living there. Combined, the three venues house more than 9,000 works of art. See the favorite subjects of Skagen artists, such as fishermen at work, fishermen's cottages, landscapes, and views into the artists' social life. Taste a homemade cake at the cafe in the garden house, which for a while served as artists' residence.

Many works reflect the special light that exists at Skagen. You also get an insight into the social life of Skagen at the end of the 1800 century. Please note that the museum has no private parking, but you can try to find a place in the city and then walk a bit.
Some of the best art available. I love pictures that looks like something you recognize.
