When visiting

We kindly ask you to observe the museum’s rules for visitors:

Please remember

Do not touch the works of art.
Photography is permitted, but not with a flash or tripod.
Food and drink may not be consumed in the museum.
Please do not use mobile phones for conversation.
Large bags are not allowed into the museum.
Lockers are available and tokens are available to borrow.
Instructions from the custodians must be followed at all times.


The museum is not easily accessible to the walking-impaired, since the David Collection is located in historical buildings that have many flights of stairs.

Wheelchairs and rollators

Because of the museum’s layout in two historical buildings, visitors may unfortunately not use wheelchairs or rollators. The elevator will not function in case of fire, and no staff would be available to help evacuate the walking-impaired.


Lockers are available and are locked with a token, you can borrow at the reception. 


The toilets are found on plan 0 next to the cloakroom and on the 4th floor.

Find information on our app

You can download our museum app before your visit. You will find information about the exhibitions, our collections and the artworks at the museum.

You will find the app in your app store by searching for The David Collection. The app is free of charge.

Info-tablets & audio guides

The Islamic collection is of practical considerations dimly lit. If you want to make sure that you can read all the labels in this part of the museum, we recommend borrowing one of our info-tablets.

For more than 100 of the Islamic artworks the info-tablet furthermore includes an audio guide.

You can borrow an info-tablet free of charge at the reception.  

Museum shop

The museum shop sells books, periodicals, a large selection of posters, postcards, and magnets as well as a memory game with motifs from the collections.

The museum shop has the same opening hours as the museum.
