The David collection has a considerable quantity of artifacts, quite enough to keep busy for 3 hours if you don't get tired. Its one of the few museums in Copenhagen that is free of charge (so some relief on the poor old wallet). There are coins, carpets, porcelain, paper, some carved wood, you name it. The display cabin are of... More

last visited in 1996. Collection has been re-arranged and expanded. Full of very beautiful things. Paintings. Ceramics. All sort of artifacts. Dont remember seeing a lift - so wheelchair access may not be easy

The David Collection has a very nice Islamic collection (the highlight of this place), so it certainly worth the visit for history and art lovers, as it has free entrance. On the other hand, it is not packed with tourists (June 2015), so it's nice and quit. The place also gives the visitors iPads with a digital scanner that enables... More

great space. gorgeous islamic arts. some decorative arts. easy to find, right by the Kings Garden. Looks a bit like a house maze inside, but doesn't take long to see all the rooms.

Extensive collection of Muslim artifacts and art thoroughly explained through a portable tablet. Like many museums, it has more artifacts and info than most can take in at one time, but it's free, so one can go in and enjoy as much as one wants to. It's well worth it

Davids Samling (David's Collection) is a remarkable collection of Oriental antiques and Danish paintings from the so-called golden age. The Oriental collection is unique and has some highlights which, as i understand, cannot be experienced anywhere else.

This was my first site seen in the Copenhagen since it was rated highest online at some review site. It has lots of Muslim history and mention of India and other south asian countries to find roots of Mugal culture. It was not something that great for me since I am not really a conventional Art person but overall a... More

Only 10 minutes walk from the Royal Theatre you will find a very fine collection of Islamic art and very fine ceramic work. It covers the history of the middle East with a lot of very unique pieces of art. If you are interrested in art then go and see this exiting place.

Great little museum with a surprisingly good collection of Middle Eastern art. It compares favorably to the Middle Eastern collections of many large museums.

we only had 1/2 hour to see this, but could have done with more time, interesting even if you don't care for religion, islamic ( when people refer to it in a description of the museum) is used in a more generic and geographic sense. I enjoyed it even though not a religious person.
