“World-class collection”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

Right next to the Rosenborg gardens, with a very discreet entrance, this free museum holds the magnificent collection of danish businessman CL David. The highlights are the Islamic art collection and a lot of danish paintings and objects from the danish golden age, but what is most impressive is the impeccable display and organization. The house is amazing and was completely restored recently, so you get the impression that this collection is being taken care of as all art collections should be. Simply THE must-see in Copenhagen for art-lovers.

“Fabulous”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

The exhibit of "Islamic" art and artifacts is extensive and informative. Depicted as an incredibly accomplished and sophisticated culture.

“Stunning”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

Absolutely perfect collection. Free entry and well presented. Two floors are dedicated to Islamic art, the fabric samples are amazing. Two further floors are French and Danish furniture. All staff speak perfect English and are willing to give you explanations. An iPad mini is free for English translations for many of the exhibits.

“A truly wonderful collection”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

We were extremely impressed with the Islamic collection at the David Collection, a really great exhibition, especially considering it is free. Couldn't fault it and would highly recommend it to others.

“Dazzling collection of Islamic artefacts”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

We happened upon this museum by chance - but found it absolutely fascinating. The tablet provided gives you stacks of information - you could spend hours and hours here. Made me aware how ignorant I am of the Islamic history.
