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

I came here twice-- once on a 1-hour guided tour and again for a lecture. The Islamic art collection is world-class. But first-time viewers and those with little or no experience with Islamic art, the guided tour is very helpful. Audio guides are also available....More

This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its

city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which

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
