Museums, Cultural, Interesting Places, Art Galleries
Anchers Hus is the former residence of the painters Michael and Anna Ancher in Skagen, Denmark. They were both central figures in the artist colony of Skagen Painters who lived and worked in the town during late 19th and early 20th century. They lived in the house for five decades and in 1913 expanded it with a studio annex designed by Ulrik Plesner, another member of the colony.
Their house now serves as a historic house museum and displays a large numbers of their own works and their personal art collection. In 1989 the museum was expanded with the neighbouring home of the Saxild family, which is used for museum café, art storage and a historical photo exhibition.
