A center of Islamic art
The David Collection is named after the lawyer, businessman and art collector C.L. David, whose own collection of artwork was opened to the public in 1917. Islamic art was an abiding passion of the collector, and over the years this element of the collection has grown into one of the most important assemblies of Islamic art in the Western world.
With a range of artwork that covers virtually the entire classical Islamic world, The David Collection offers a vivid insight into the cultural creations of that important early society. At the museum, this art is presented in its cultural context, allowing visitors to learn the stories behind the paintings and sculptures.
In addition to providing a fascinating look at the art of Islam, The David Collection also displays a significant number of European artworks, including some of the work of early modern Danish artists. All these exhibits are contained in a stunning Danish red brick building.

Travelers looking for a Copenhagen hotel which will complement a trip to the remarkable museum will find that the Radisson Blu Falconer Hotel & Conference Center, Copenhagen is the perfect base for their stay.
