This is a real gem. The collection of Islamic art is pretty stunning, don't think I have ever seen such a great collection of this kind of art before. Really enjoyed it. There is other types of collections are good and also worth a visit. Would recommend

If you are interested in middle eastern art, this is a really good collection. And it's the only FREE museum in Copenhagen that we found despite being told the new government had made the museums in Copenhagen free by a taxi driver. It is adjacent to Rosenberg Castle so plan on seeing them together.

Easy to find and polite staff when you get there. Free tablets to translate everything for you into English completely free of charge. Obviously having an interest in Islamic Art would be a plus otherwise it may seem a bit long winded to read through so much and see so many displays. I had a fabulous time here and would... More

it is located in a nice building with few floors. Nicely put together, just the right size collection with enough variety that touches different subject.

This is one of the best museums I have ever visited. You need to allow some time to fully appreciate it. A must see for travellers with an interest in art history

Some of the description seems to be wrong. That's why I have rated it 3 otherwise it could be 5. And the design of the museum is really bad. I was lost!!!

Free and near other attractions such as the botanical gardens and the rosenberg castle. Everything is in Danish so the ipad they give you to get the English version is necessary. Four floors that are quite dark inside but lovely collection.

This museum was an unexpected and delightful surprise. I had not find it among Copenhagen's prime attractions when I googled for cultural spots but it is not to be missed. Dont be misled by descriptions of The David Collection as a "small" museum. Its collections, particularly of Islamic art, are extensive and reward your time and attention. The iPads that... More

Staying in Indre By (Inner City)

Neighborhood Profile
Indre By (Inner City)
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 neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
