A small museum with a world-class collection

The David Collection is an exclusive museum in the heart of Copenhagen. Here you can find one of the most comprehensive collections of Islamic art in the Western world, a fine selection of European 18th-century art and a smaller, but exquisite, representation of Danish early modern painting, sculpture and ceramics.

We look forward to welcoming you to a unique museum experience with ample opportunity to immerse yourself in the works of art and the many stories they tell.
