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)

Need to add my two cents to the other rave reviews. Unlike any other museum in the city. Even if you don’t have a particular interest in Arabic art - tapestries- tiles - ceramics - this collection is fascinating. Well curated , and not crowded....More

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.

We expected this museum to be tiny based on the recommendation and location, but it was surprisingly large and unique. The Islamic Art collection is unlike anything I’d seen. It’s a little tricky to find but worth the visit.

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

A taxi would be the best, as the bus stops are at either end of street, where the David Collection is placed - so you would have to walk a bit. A good idea is to be able to show the taxi driver, where the museum is, as it is... More
