“Lovely Islamic art collection, and free admission”

The David Collection
Ranked #5 of 385 things to do in Copenhagen
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 1 September 2017

The David collection would be a worthwhile visit for anyone who likes beautiful art. Add the fact that there is no admission fee and this gem of a museum is even more attractive. The collection of pieces from all over the Islamic world is extensive and well-presented.

This is one of the most interesting museums I have been to. Amazingly entrance is free, although I would happily have paid. The Islamic art collection is extensive and extremely beautiful, with plenty of information to accompany it (unlike other museums I have visited that lack information). The information plaques take you through the history of Islam, and English speakers can borrow a tablet to read about the different objects- there is a huge amount of information, all of which you couldn't possibly read, but it's really impressive and useful to have it all to hand, to be able to pick and choose what you read about. If you are interested in history and culture, the David Collection is a must-see.

My wife and I took a 24-hour trip to Copenhagen for our small celebration (and no, we didn't use the City Card because it was too expensive and not worth it).
We visited this place, and it was really great! We should've spent more hours there! Totally beyond expectation with the entire collections! Definitely worth the visit, especially since it's free.

Stupidly arrived at the David Collection at 4pm, wish we had gone hours earlier to give us more time to be there! The collection is incredibly interesting. It was free for us, which is amazing in Copenhagen, and you get a tablet which you can hold up to each exhibit, connect to, and learn more.

Definitely recommend!

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 to all along with a self-guided video tour available in several languages.
