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

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.

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
