This is a large collection of Islamic artwork as well as paintings and other Danish furniture , sculpture . It is meticulously presented in many beautiful wooden cabinets with drawers to view tapestries etc For English speaking, an iPad is loaned to explain each exhibit . By waving the iPad over a spiral symbol , a description of that piece... More

Friends suggested that we visit this small museum, located just off the Kongens Have and so we did! It was a truly magnificent collection of Islamic Art, free entrance always as the founder/collector's foundation wants everybody to have the chance. Go, go, go! They have state of the art information systems in DK/EN, tablets enabling specific info on each object... More

Large collection of islamic art from north africa, the middle-east, asia and the Iberic peninsula and very informative descriptions. If you do not speak danish, the staff will lend you a tablet so that you can scan the plates and have the text in english rather than danish.

I got top this place quite by chance. Spending few days in Copenhagen it was not on my planned list but after watching several posters on the city walls I was curious to get a "first-hand" experience on it. It was one of the best decision I've ever taken durring my trips. What you see here is really unique, precious,... More

Start at the top at it is a breathtaking collection of Islamic art from around the world. Extremely well displayed on 2 and a half floors. The other floors represent the original collection of furniture and paintings from Europe and Denmark and have less interest after seeing the Islamic part. Do take an i-Pad at the reception as you can... More

This is a must-see for all lovers of the arts and everyone else. A Copenhagen highlight that does not receive the publicity it deserves. And entry is free!

I highly recommend this museum. It is perhaps my favorite in Copenhagen. The building itself is interesting, the Islamic art was beautiful and the narrative (English provided) very informative. Allow several hours as it is very large collection. To make it complete it is free every day.

A beautiful collection, and very informative. I learned so much about the history of Islam through the art exhibits, it is well worth using the tablet style guide provided.

This private museum was recommended to us by friends and we weren't disappointed. The location is central and on the edge of the Botanical Gardens. The house is beautiful and is the former home of the museum's founder Christian Ludvig David with a private collection of paintings, porcelain and furniture on the first two floors. Although interesting the real attraction... More
