The Coastal Museum of Skagen is a combined open air and exhibition museum. Here you can visit three historical Skagen houses from three different architectural periods defined by different colours: The Black period (until approximately 1875), the Yellow period (approximately 1875-1907) and the Red period (from 1907).
Apart from the historical houses you can also see special exhibitions on fishing, maritime rescue service and seafaring. The exhibitions provide an introduction to the interesting history of Skagen and to the dramatic life by the coast.
