We really enjoyed this museum - well-curated, with an amazing collection of artifacts. The Islamic collection must be world-renowned, it is so amazing. But the museum isn't just about Islamic culture -there is also a great collection of china and pottery from different eras. Also,...More

I was very sceptic about David Collection at the very beginning - thought it's very different from Scandinavian culture and aesthetic. And then decided to give it it a try . Well - just beautiful , lots of ceramics , enamels and embroideries . The...More

Built across several stories of a former home The David Collection offers a beguiling collection of Islamic and Danish art that should not be missed by visitors to Copenhagen, the private-collection-turned-public elegantly designed from the top down with several rare relics, scrolls and tapestries free...More

Even though I read many positive reviews on TA before I just wasn't prepared for the overwhelming exposition of this museum. This place deserves to be in the top 5 of Copenhagen and honestly it is among the best museums I ever visited. The walk...More

Indre By (Inner City)
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
