  • Fabulous museum in a splendid building. Entrance is free (unlike most sites in Copenhagen). Sadly we only had the time to view the amazing collection of Islamic art and that at a bit of a rush. To take in all that the museum has to offer best to allow 3 or 4 hours. Highly recommended.

  • A different kind of museum than ones I've visited in the past, especially considering that this is a personal collection. We saw the Islamic exhibit which showed a massive collection of Islamic art throughout history. It also explained many of the influences that lead to the Islamic styles. Highly recommend visiting this museum. You could visit several times and still find new stuff every time, there is so much to explore.

  • Fantastic museum with the biggest islamic art collection in northern europe. They also have 14 paintings of Denmark's best known painter Hammershøj. Go there. It's just beside Kings Garden. Free entrance.

  • Perfect place to spend quality time when the weather is not good :) (free entrance)

  • 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.
