Come here to see the real Muhammad drawings ... taken from ancient Quranic scriptures these pages show you Islamic art at its best ... only in Denmark would a Christian descendant of a Jewish merchant create the greatest collection of Islamic art.

We suddenly decided to visit the David collection on a rainy Saturday - and even though we had high expectations, we were very impressed. Many beautiful objects with good descriptions on a little tablet that you can borrow, in Danish and English. Friendly personel, it was all good. We're coming back to visit the other half of the collection on... More

This was one of my favourite museums. Well laid out and with English translations when using the provided Tablet. It gave you a good background to Islamic history and art. Well worth visiting.

The Islamic art collection spans the time of the Prophet Muhammad right up to British occupation on India and from India to Spain. They also have Danish and French exhibits. Whether you're interested in Islamic or Eurasian history or just like looking at pretty things you'll enjoy this place. Recommended.

I had read it was a great Museum so I went based on the good reviews I had read and I wasn't disappointed. Start from the last floor with the Islamic collection and spend as much time as you want cause the 1st and 2nd floor aren't full of items and aren't too interesting. It's near Rosenborg Castle so you... More

A lot to see and I suggest visitors start at the top and work their way down. There is a lift although not easy to find. We were given a very useful Tablet to translate Danish signage into English during the visit.

The museum is rather small but the collection astonishing reach, makes you spend a lot of time admiring and reading the explanations. The museum is a central area , the entrance free of charge.You get a tablet that provides you with all necessary information regarding the exposed objects . The beauty of the objects is beyond description,considering they are sometimes... More

Staying in Indre By (Inner City)

Neighborhood Profile
Indre By (Inner City)
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
