We came across this accidentally. What an incredible collection of all things related to the history of Islam as well as 18th century art. There are 5 floors of artifacts. An excellent photo exhibit takes up the ground floor. Admission is free

the top two floors have unique exhibits (islamic art) and they are very interesting..the other two are quite average. it is definitely worth a visit, plus it is free (which is amazing if you see how well organized and nice place it is)

I can't believe this was free. Immaculately laid out. I would particularly recommend taking the time to look at the miniatures collection on the top floor.

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
