"Tidens Samling" is a museum of modern Denmark. The permanent exhibition shows period living rooms with original furniture and everyday objects that represent the time from 1900 to 1980. The museum also houses a library, an area with costumes, a café and a museum shop. The museum organizes alternating exhibitions focusing on significant periods of time, events and Danish design in the 20th century.

The Museum is the first cultural history ‘hands-on museum’ in Denmark. In the permanent exhibition, guests can sit in the furniture, explore the drawers, read the books, try on the clothes and put period music on the turntable. The many details evoke memories in the adult audience, while children and young people learn about the lives of past generations.
The museum has been around since 1992 and is housed in Kulturmaskinen, located as part of the area of Brandts in the center of Odense.

The museum is also open the first Sunday of every month.
