Accessibility for visitors with disabilities

Two signposted disabled parking spaces are available outside Skagens Museum. Skagens Museum is wheelchair accessible through the main entrance.

We try hard to provide accessibility for everyone, but in old houses it can be difficult to meet all the requirements. The artists’ homes, Anchers Hus and Drachmanns Hus, may have limited accessibility. Please contact the museum prior to the visit, if you have concerns or questions.
