Skagen Museum in Skagen, Frederikshavn, Denmark | Museum

Welcome to Skagen Museum, Skagen, Denmark. Skagen Museum was founded in the dining room at Brøndum’s Hotel in Skagen on October 20th 1908. The chemist, Victor Chr. Klæbel, hotel proprietor, Degn Brøndum, and the artists, Michael Ancher, P.S. Krøyer and Laurits Tuxen were elected to form the first board of governors. The aim was to gather the works of the Skagen artists and to raise economic funding for the building of a Museum.

The Garden House (Havehuset) in the Skagen Museum garden is one of Skagen’s oldest houses.

It was first mentioned in 1801, and was named in the 1840s when it became part of the Brøndum property. This annexation meant that the house was now in the garden of the Brøndum property and this was the reason for the name the Garden House. It has been used for many different purposes.
