My friend a and I visited this museum while in Copenhagen and were both impressed by the number of items and history to be found there. It's very similar in style to the Wallace collection in London with lots of historical objects like jewelry and furniture from denmark and around the world. Would definitely recommend it and although most of... More

I must say I was very surprised when I visited the museum. It dont look of much when you arrive, but behind the gate is a hidden treasure.

Probably the most extensive Islamist art collection I've visited. The Bluetooth tablet guides were wonderful to gain better understanding of items that pique your interest. Coins, weapons, incense, cloth, pottery & dishes, ancient Koran pages, tiles, and the history of Islam - this museum offers it all. For free. Thank you and kudos to the museum!

It's not a full normal museum, but I LOVED that this man and his wife went to so much expense to build this building for their collections so the public could enjoy his precious collection. I love the garden in the middle with benches and the café also. There are a few really super valuable pieces, big name artists like... More

The two good things I have to say about this is that it was free, and we got a tablet for English translation. I think this museum would be perfect for someone that is older than I was, but I found it to be quite boring and redundant. Wouldn't recommend for a younger crowd.

The art is special and extremely well displayed. The staff is excellent, helpful and friendly. Everything is free including coat check and iPads with information in Danish or English. We did not allow enough time for our visit

We read all the positive reviews here, but where still blown away when we got there. Super friendly people who work there. Loved the tablet with which you scan the art really easily so that you can read the info in English. The building is just stunnashingly beautiful! Super well maintained. It's a really rich museum! Very clean toilets

This museum is particularly noted for its collection of Islamic art from the 8th to the 19th century. I knew nothing of this subject and found the displays to be nicely presented and informative. When you enter the museum, you are given an electronic device like a mini-tablet used to get further information on items in the collection. On the... More

This place has an absolutely stunning collection of Islamic art which is very professionally presented - and on top of it, it is free (including the tablet you get that contains a detailed description of almost every single exhibit). This was one of the best museum experiences I've ever had (but then again, I do like Islamic art...).

You get "ipad" there, just to read information about every single tiny peace of collection! And its huge! it took me three hours just to get familiar with one floor of exhibition. Beautiful and rare!
