THis is a small museum but well worth the time. An outstanding collection and great care has been taken to present it in an accessible manner. The tablets they give you are a wonderful addition so you can read more about the items.

Not only very rich and interesting collection, but also superb organisation of exhibitions and explanations. It was a veritable crash course in Islam's history and culture. The Danish part is nice and enjoyable, the personal is very helpful.

We visited this museum because we are quite fond of Islamic art and had read the reviews here. The Islamic collection was all we had time to see, but it was of outstanding quality and very well presented. As much as we enjoyed it, I'm a bit surprised that it's the number one attraction in Copenhagen since the city has... More

An amazing collection of Danish art, European early porcelain and Islamic art that forms a collection of international standing. Stunningly designed and presented (as only the Danish know how...) and also free. What a privilege to experience this place. Highly recommended!

Costed here based on a recommendation. It was a superb recommend cation. The museum is modern and very hitech. Each visitor is assigned a tablet to aid in explorAtion of the collection. Make sure you start on the 4th floor and work your way down. A must visit attraction in copenhengen!

The home is special by itself. The art works are impressive (I am not an artifacts expert) and the narrative (via tablet) is excellent. We could have easily spent much of the day there - truly a gem. Highly recommend - particularly if you have any interest in Islamic art.

This museum has two different parts - Islamic Art and Danish Collections. I went to both of the parts and it was quite amazing experience. If I remember correctly, the oldest collection in Islamic section was from 7th century. It will require more than 3 hour to visit the whole museum. I also liked the Danish section where you can...

Admittedly, the first floor was not that interesting for me, as it was based mainly on classical Danish and European art - similar to so many other museums. The main exhibitions are from the 3 floor and up - the Islamic exhibition. I love Islamic art and culture and the museum was perfect for this! The museum was full of... More

Very pleasantly surprised at the exceptional quality of the pieces in the collection, rated as one of the best Islamic collection worldwide! Displayed professionally, pieces were exquisite, fine and varied. It was a joy to appreciate the obvious care and thought put into displaying each piece in its best light. And entrance is free! Go early as one can easily... More
