“Very uninteresting”

The David Collection
Ranked #5 of 385 things to do in Copenhagen

Reviewed April 26, 2013

The content of the museum left much to be desired. Mostly Islamic text. There were some few nice pieces, but it is not worth the time.

Had a hard time finding the place using the gps link from TA, so I walked around a bit and found it on my own. The museum is a worthwhile visit for those passionate about history and those looking to learn about one of history's cradles of civilization. Great exibit and good presentation in a classic and cozy building.

I was intrigue about this popular place thats why I got here. Upon entrance you will be greeted by a smiling staff will provide you an audio guide. Surprise to know lots of Islamic relics can be found here with accurate description and history. Was never really a fan of museums but the elegance and grand of this place made me stay for long. the staffs are very helpful in explaining to me things that I am interested with.
Nice place to visit.

Close to the Rosenborg Slot (palace), across the park = this WONDERFUL DISCOVERY. The David Samling or The David Collection is exhibited in a quiet and beautiful building, that lies behind a non-descript street view!

We took in both the permanent and temporary (Flora Islamica) exhibitions. Having enjoyed London's V&A museum islamic art collection....I can safely say this TOTALLY OUTSHINES LONDON!!

Exquisite pottery, tapestries and paintings. Superb

AND IT'S FREE :)

Set in an immaculately maintained, beautiful building, the David Collection is an interesting diversion in the centre of Copenhagen. Having little knowledge of Islam or its art, I found the history of the Islamic people written in English on panels in each room fascinating. One or two items in each display are mentioned on the English audio guide, which is essential if you don't read Danish, as the notes against each item are only in Danish. It's great to see one person's collection of the beautiful objects which they love, making this a fine way to spend a rainy hour or two in Copenhagen
