If you’re a scholar of Islam or Islamic Art, you’ll love this place. If not, you’ll still like it, though it’s really amazingly detailed. The European section’s mainly if Danish domestic interest - which is fine as we’re in Copenhagen! Wonderfully calm.

This free museum was our favourite place in Copenhagen. Spent two hours looking at the most incredible collection of Islamic art including ceramics, tiles, wood carvings and illuminations. Fantastically curated and beautifully lit. What a wonderful place , and again completely free!

Excellent collection in a beautiful building. You need a couple of hours at least for it but it is surely worth it. Don't miss it when you are in Copenhagen.

Just stunning. Well set out, with a beautiful collection of Islamic art. The house itself is a delight with rooms set out as when they were lived in. Friendly, informative staff.

A stunning collection of Islamic art and artefacts, and lots of other stuff we didn't have time to see, with a free iPad that translates all the information for each exhibit. And it's all free!

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
