The museum founded by Michael Ancher and his friends opened in 1928, and contains 1 500 paintings, drawings and sculptures by Skagen School artists. The painters, fascinated by the ever-changing light of the windswept landscape, came to work in Skagen between 1830 and 1930. Note the 81 artists' portraits and other paintings on the panelling in the dining room, which was moved here from the Brøndum hotel where the artists used to meet.
