David CollectionFree: All time

The David Collection was founded by C.L. David, a prominent lawyer who left his art collections ot posterity in the building that had been his own home. Since his death in 1960, the area covered by the museum has increased significantly in keeping with the acquisition of numerous new works of art. The museum is particularly noted for its collection of Islamic art from the 8th to the 19th century, which is one of the largest in Northern Europe. The museum also holds fine and applied art from Europe in the 18th century and the Danish Golden Age as well as a small collection of Danish early modern art.
