“If you're looking for Islamic art & history”
Reviewed April 3, 2012

A never-ending labyrinth of Islamic art and artifacts (not even mentioning the manuscripts! due to time limitations, we had to skip over these). Beautiful and rich, this museum (free admission) is a gem. Take your time and learn something new. This is the place.

“Lovely museum”
Reviewed February 28, 2012

The David collection is a fantastic museum. The collection of islamic art is something special but the rooms with Danish furniture and art is also worth visiting. I like that the museum is relatively small so that you have a chance to see everything. Admittance is free which is a plus - and you can come back several times to take a look at your favourites!

“Nice collection for free”
Reviewed February 26, 2012

It is probably the smallest museum in CPH.
The collection is not impressive, but it is a well spend 2 hours. And it's for free!
