The David Collection is really impressive, even more so if you consider that it is free. They have an impressive collection of Islamic art that is wonderfully presented with lots of accompanying information about the religion, culture, and areas of the world where the artefacts were found. We found it really informative as well as beautiful. I also like the... More

Why is this number 1 in Copenhagen? It's good but not mindblowingly amazing. Its A Free Exhibit. Would go if you're nearby but theres better museums to see.

My favorite museum in Copenhagen. A world class collection of Islamic art that the Qataris would love to have in Doha but also some local gems including a sublime Hammershøj interior. The building itself is also worth seeing for itself and it's all free!!

We only managed the Islamic collection which was amazing and we really only saw a fraction of that. Well laid out museum, everything has been thought of, places to sit down, toilets in convenient places with paper cups for water. A huge collection that would take a few weeks to see properly. Well worth a visit or 8. AND IT'S... More

The David Collection represents the finest in private museums: choice objects within Islamic art, English furniture from the 18th Century, and 19th-20th Century Danish art. Entrance is free, everything is beautiful, and the staff polite and knowledgeable. Only good Things to be said about this Collection!

Do not let the No.1 TripAdvisor status deceive you. Unless you are into ancient islamic art and cabinet making - don't bother going. For some reason just thought we should go as it was No.1, but to be honest it was a waste of time. However - if you ARE into that kind of thing, it would be a great... More

This musuem covers the development of art during Islamic periods from day 1 to 20th century. It takes you on a journey throughout all Islamic territories in the past. I come from Iran and I am familiar withsome Islamic history, but this musuem added a lot to my knowledge especially about Islamic influence in India, Spain & Sicilly. I learnt... More
