This is really a great and attractive museum. Its collection of old islamic/Arabic arts is fantastic. But also it has a great collection of Danish arts from the last two centuries. The museum has a great location in the old historic area of Copenhagen, next...More

The collection was very interesting and informative. Unfortunately we did not have enough time to go through everything, as the collection is endless! Still worth a visit!

This is a free museum, located at walking distance from Norreport Metro Station. David's Sammling contains rare pieces of Muslim art and provides an in-depth glance to the propagation and history of the rise and expansion of the Muslim world.

Great artifacts. Excellent use of technology (RFID tablets free to use throughout the museum). Great storytelling from one artifact to the other.

Fine Museum, with a fine collection of Islamic arts. But I wouldn't call it family friendly, security is tight and on your tail if you got small ones with you. Dont know if that was Davids original idea after exploring the world, and then make...More

We brought our teenagers. Good English audio guides. Large Islamic collection. Nice activity at night since it gets dark so early in November.

If someone had told me I’d enjoy looking at a gallery full of Islamic art, I probably wouldn’t have believed them. But there were some stunning pieces. Staff were really friendly and helpful and on top of all that the place is free to enter.

This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its
blend of charming old buildings and bold new
architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well
as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner
city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which
consists of three buildings, two of which are new and
situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and
venues of the inner city and its surrounding

A taxi would be the best, as the bus stops are at either end of street, where the David Collection is placed - so you would have to walk a bit. A good idea is to be able to show the taxi driver, where the museum is, as it is... More

Practically of the museums you mention have quite big and varied collections. Note that most museums are closed on Mondays too. And of course, Kronborg is in Helsingør, about 1 h of transport to get there. So a bit too dense, IMO.

hello! my husband and I are returning to Copenhagen and would like ideas or recommendations. We went to a good number of the highly reccomended sites (Amalienborg, Christiania, little mermaid, Nyhavn,David Collection, the castles, etc). Looking specifically for beer, food, and must-see museums! Thanks!

How to see these places in 3 days with 2 kids? (3 Replies)
Hi, We will arrive on April 30 at noon. We already rented a car to be able to stay out of Copenhagen and also drive around freely specially when having 2 kids (3 and 6 years old). The total time in Denmark, Sweden, and Norway are 14 days. I am thinking full 3 days in Copenhagen (May 1, 2, and 3) before departing to either Oslo or Stockholm. I looked at the ferry options but it takes too much time and is too expensive. I rather spend the time stopping by different small towns along the way...More

Hi Y4tTavel Should be doable, all of it. Consider Copenhagen one of the world larger very small cities... everything downtown is fairly close together, which will help you a lot in your itinerary. Though not far apart, with young kids I understand your wish to have a car along with you. Just know that in some cases it will actually take you longer to find a legal parking spot, then to walk in-between. How you go about planing all this, is of course dependent upon where you stay in...More
