Davids Samling, Copenhagen Reviews - Write a Review

  • Money is clearly no problem for this museum. It is not really designed for the general visitors but for art needs. It could need some staff that is focussed on splendid communication to enlighten lay visitors.

  • Fantastic museum with the biggest islamic art collection in northern europe. They also have 20+ paintings of Denmark's best known painter Hammershøj. Go there. It's just beside Kings Garden.

  • Nice museum, it's free, it's full of things to see, a large collection about Islam art, and something more about Danish, English and France. If u are in Copenaghen, this is a place that u must visit.

  • Hidden gem and wonderful museum in Copenhagen. Admission's free, go and explore and get lost in the labyrinth of rooms and treasures.

  • A great museum, especially if you are interested in muslim history
