It is a very nice collection with nice presentation. The most interesting part is the islamic selection with ceramics. You receive a tablet to help navigation in the museum. The entrance is free.

I was very impressed with this museum, very friendly staff at the entrance and we were given a small iPad to take around the museum. You will need a 10 Krone coin deposit for the lockers. We did not have enough time to see every section (as we arrived an hour before closing time) so we went straight to the... More

I went to The David Collection because it was highly rated on Trip Advisor and the steered me well. This collector bought the very best Islamic Art and left enough money to display it in the most compelling fashion. This should be a must do for everyone as it helps explain the middle east that is in so much turmoil... More

This collection is awesome. So much art in one place, it is a little difficult to take in after a while. Visit and see the ultimate history of Islamic art all in one place. A must see while in Copenhagen.

The museum houses two floors of Islamic art on the top, one of the better ones in Europe. Free entry.

This museum is an amazing collection of art, Islamic art, rugs, glass art, probably thousands of other things. Really an overwhelming collection of beautiful things. Start on the top floor and work your way down. The historical/geographical explanations on the walls are very helpful in putting what you're looking at in context. The building itself is also interesting.

A huge collection. I'm not an "art enthusiast" as such but the items on display here are beguiling and fascinating. We visited on a rainy day in Copenhagen and it was the perfect way to spend a couple of hours out of the rain.

A beautiful museum. We didn't end up spending much time here, but we were amazed by the vastness of the collection and the information about the different periods. Some of the digital screens didn't work, but generally everything was displayed well (some parts were a bit of a maze). Definitely worth a visit (friendly staff and the fact it's free... More

The Islamic art is presented in historical order and offers a wide range of art forms including painting, tiles, rugs clothing, pottery and books. I did not find the western collection of art and furniture nearly as interesting as the Islamic
