Absolutely excellent museum just coming down with exhibits, all well labelled, and all for free. Take the ipad they offer and hold it to the frames, and you can enjoy an audio and text guide in English that gives you lots of extra information. I can't believe they have no entrance fee. A really wonderful museum!

We stumbled on this - it's not on the major tourist lists, but tripadvisor rated it highly, and for good reason. You may not think of going to a middle eastern art museum in Copenhagen, but they did this so very well. You wander around in this museum and at every turn you see marvelous art.

This museum is an under-appreciated treasure. It was one of the only attractions open on New Year's Day, and we spent a lovely afternoon browsing through the impressive collection of Islamic art (the tiles were of particular interest). The free admission to this museum is surprising, particularly as the reception provide tablets which translate information on all of the pieces.... More

The David Collection is really a museum housing 3 collections. Floors 3 and 4 contain a very detailed, extremely well ordered assembly of Islamic artefacts, documents, texts coming from different regions and time periods of the Muslim world. You get a tablet at the door so you can basically obtain information about all of the items displayed. One can literally... More

This is a hidden gem in the heart of Copenhagen, yes free entry and such an unforgettable experience, so much to see in this small house with an amazingly extensive collection of Islamic art. I will unabashedly admit to having spent more than four hours exploring display after display, dynasty after dynasty from the ottoman empire to the far east... More

I've visited David's Samling many times. The upper floors contain one of the finest collections of Islamic art I've ever seen. There is detailed text (in Danish) explaining the works and their traditions, and you can borrow a free tablet that will give you the English text for virtually everything. Free admission, too.

This small museum has a stunning collection of Islamic art. Located in an old home, the museum is set out in a rabbit warren of little rooms that have been moderne with beautiful modern woodwork and lighting. Truly amazing rugs, tiles, paintings. The top few floors are well worth spending hours in....the collection of Danish art, not as much. Please... More
