Wonderful place. I have met locals who have passed this museum a thousand times without knowing about the existence of this hidden jewel. If you have at least 2 hours to spare it is a very good investment in making yourself a wiser person.

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

A taxi would be the best, as the bus stops are at either end of street, where the David Collection is placed - so you would have to walk a bit. A good idea is to be able to show the taxi driver, where the museum is, as it is... More
