Went here as a part of our tour in Copenhagen. They have nice art pieces here. Its was my first time to see Islamic art pieces up close. The details were amazing. Oh, did I say its free?

Beautiful building, didn't get the relevance of the art but for free so cannot complain. They told us to put our jackets on half way round, not sure why, but then we were pretty hot!

I've never seen anything like the Islamic collection. I would venture it is the best in the world and one of the best on any religeon period. The scope and level of detail is unbelievable. Best of all it is free

It's a free 'museum' which includes two floors of rather random European art and furniture, and then two bigger (and much more interesting) floors of Islamic art. The location is close to the beautiful park of Kongens Have, and very close to many other attractions as well as cafés, restaurants and bars. So it's worth stopping by the David Collection... More

I couldn't make it here the first time in CPH, so I went back more than a year later to see this collection and it was well worth it. The staff was quite nice and they have a cool system for you to be informed about top works using a tablet and some magnetic labels they have all over the... More

Depth and breadth of the Islamic collection is breathtaking. The tablet translator for English speakers is actually easier than reading the labels. Well worth a visit.

Was not expecting this on a journey to Denmark but I was delighted to have come across this unique place in Copenhagen. Enjoy the beauty of this David Collection from the East. If you like art and exhibitions do visit this wonderful place. Admission is free so go and enjoy the wonderment of the East!
