Learning Resources at the David Collection - also in English

LEARNING RESOURCES IN THE AUTUMN

The David Collection’s Department of Learning Resources has narrowed its guidelines for school visits as a result of COVID-19.

From the middle of August, the department will offer a specially organized program for upper secondary school and higher preparatory school classes as well as for institutions of higher education. Instruction will be provided in the museum’s lecture hall in the form of a c. 30-minute introduction to the museum’s Islamic Collection, including a presentation of selected museum pieces. Then the classes will be able to divide into smaller groups to explore the exhibitions.

When a class arrives at the museum, its teacher is requested to come alone to the information office desk and notify it. There is hand-rubbing alcohol at the entrance to the museum that must be used upon arrival. Jackets and bags must be kept in the lecture hall and not in the wardrobe. In the exhibition, pupils are requested to keep the entrance and exit open to passage and take other guests’ movements into consideration, since there are many narrow areas in the exhibitions.

If you need help and advice during your visit, do ask our employees, who are available at the entrance and in the museum’s exhibitions.

Unfortunately, the museum’s Department of Learning Resources will not be able to offer any service for primary school classes in August and September.

We keep informed about the health authority’s guidelines for school classes. If current precautions change, offers for school visits will be constantly updated.

A visit should be booked well in advance. Please note that the booking is not registered until an e-mail from the museum has been received.
