Kystmuseet Skagen

Interesting for the whole family

Experience Kystmuseet Skagen which is a combined open-air and in-door exhibition museum with rebuilt houses from three exciting periods in the history of Skagen:

  • The Black Period (until about 1875)
  • The Yellow Period (ca. 1875-1907)
  • The Red Period (after 1907)

Once here you see how the rich and the poor fisherman lived under very different circumstances.

In the museum's main building, you can view various special exhibitions on fishing, searescue services and shipping. The exhibitions is a really good introduction to Skagen's exciting history and to the often very dramatic life on the coast.

Throughout the year Kystmuseet Skagen offers various guided tours, exciting lectures, concerts and fun activities for children, especially during the Danish school holidays.

Welcome to an exciting travel in time in the history of Skagen.
