Though you may get overwhelmed at the sheer number of pieces in the David Collection, I still recommend visiting this exceptional museum. So many beautiful things, from textiles to tiles, and the information boards explaining the history of Islam were very well done. Shockingly, this...More

Clearly, a great deal of money has been spend on making this a fantastic exhibition. Free entry but engaging for hours, it takes you through the different ages of the Islamic world and explains them using clear maps and explanations. The art is varied and...More

Came across information on this Museum while visiting Rosenberg Palace - thought it might be worth the walk across the Park as it is one of the few free displays. We were stunned by the sheer volume of the art and exhibits - many many...More

Beautifully displayed, with two floors of Islamic art and then lower down, collections of English and French furniture, porcelain etc. The Islamic collection is so extensive that, if you have the interest and the time, allow a few hours. The tablet guides provide full English...More

Wow, what a stunning collection. This was one of my favourite things in Copenhagen (perhaps only second to the Carlsberg Glyptotek). This collection is incredibly beautiful, hundreds of exquisite art spanning the Muslim world, from the Far East to North Africa and everywhere in between,...More

consists of three buildings, two of which are new and
situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and
