Simply one of the best museums/art collections I've ever seen. Exquisite items, displayed to a standard way beyond that you usually expect. Articulate narrative and uncluttered displays. Excellently translated texts and interesting explanations. Really fascinating.

This is a very interesting exhibit in a lovely building. They Islamic art was especially interesting. This is a good museum for people who speak different languages--they offer you a tablet device upon entering the museum, and while you are looking around you can plug in the numbers of what you'd like to learn more about.

Collection by one individual with emphasis on Islamic art and relics. Excellent facility which was actually his home. We learned a lot about the history of the religion through the eyes of David. Very high tech device that picks up the display you are reviewing and provides English version of the information.

Really blown away by the magnitude of the Islamic art collection. Great breadth and depth, beautifully presented. Excellent use of technology with tablets that presented the content. The Danish works seemed almost boring by comparison.

Having been frequent visitors to the other galleries in this part of Copenhagen whenever we’re in town, we were recommended to visit the David Collection by a colleague of mine, mostly to see its collection of works by Vilhelm Hammershøi. It’s a gorgeously fitted-out building that makes excellent use of the space available. The top two floors are given over... More

Amazing, world-class collection of Islamic art. Not the first thing I would associate with Copenhagen but you would be hard pressed to see such high quality pieces in the Middle East. There was so much to look at I was a bit overwhelmed. Free tablets translate everything into English - very informative.

Excellent museum, two floors of Islamic Art, too floors of furniture, paintings and ceramics. Free entry. Good English overviews in all rooms, but free tablets provided for in-depth viewing of various artifacts.

Discreet and tucked away, this is a wonderful museum of Islamic art in Copenhagen. It may be small but this is quality over quantity.

Great facility but the content was not of that much interest to us. We may be boring people but I was quite looking forward to visiting this museum. When you read the story of the individual who collected these artifacts and than willed them to others you become quite impressed. The way the foundation has used technology to bring more... More
