At Nymindegab Museum, art and cultural history merge when works by artists such as Laurits Tuxen, Maria Thymann, Oscar Matthiesen and Johannes Larsen are joined by stories about the cultural encounter between the local fishing population and the painters and bathers of the big city.
Come and hear stories about the work of the esep girls, the fates of the fishermen and Dorthea's songs about life and death by the great sea. Also hear stories about the bathers' holidays in the area, the local craftsmen, the diverse life of the inn - and not least: the painters who, like Laurits Tuxen, found their motifs by the fjord, the sea and among the brave West Jutlanders they met here.
In the open-air garden you can enjoy a cup of coffee from the café or explore the old sawmill, which is steeped in history. Children can play in the playground, build their own little boat or dress up like they did in the old days.

The Nymindegab painters
In 1879, painter Laurits Tuxen travelled from an artist colony in France up the west coast of Jutland and stopped in Nymindegab. The young artist fell in love with the thriving fishing village, which at the time was the largest on the west coast. The area around Nymindegab was a completely untouched part of Denmark. Here, life took its course in harmony with the sea. Tuxen was deeply fascinated by the endless golden dunes, the roaring sea and the local people. For an artist in search of subjects, it was a magical place to land. Laurits Tuxen returned to the area again and again, founding the artist colony Nymindegabmalerne, which attracted artists from Copenhagen.
