Few people know of this amazing place which holds an exquisite collection of mid eastern art pieces. And it is free to go in! The building itself is beautiful and you can easily spend a whole afternoon browsing through paintings, fabrics, objects, all representing the finest art created by the Arab World!

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.
