Be prepared to spend a while in the collection. It's massive and very impressive. There are many fascinating objects, and the Islamic Art portion is incredible. I learned so much from that alone. Many things are in English, and you can get a tablet to translate the signs that are in Danish.

I was positively surprised over this private collection of Danish art as well as Arabian art in a wonderful restored building in the center of Copenhagen. The building in it self is worth a visit, but if interested in arabian art it really is worthwhile spending a couple of hours.

The David Collection in Copenhagen is the largest collection of Islamic art in Scandinavia. Furthermore the collection contains European 18th century fine and applied art, displayed in interiors from the period.

The David Collection is really impressive, even more so if you consider that it is free. They have an impressive collection of Islamic art that is wonderfully presented with lots of accompanying information about the religion, culture, and areas of the world where the artefacts were found. We found it really informative as well as beautiful. I also like the... More

Why is this number 1 in Copenhagen? It's good but not mindblowingly amazing. Its A Free Exhibit. Would go if you're nearby but theres better museums to see.

My favorite museum in Copenhagen. A world class collection of Islamic art that the Qataris would love to have in Doha but also some local gems including a sublime Hammershøj interior. The building itself is also worth seeing for itself and it's all free!!
