Dear Sir, Thank you very much for your review of the David Collection. However, I was wondering, if it is the correct museum, you have reviewed, as the entrance to the museum is ALWAYS free. Sincerely yours, The David Collection

This is the best collection of Islamic art and crafts the I have ever seen. The artefacts are beautifully presented in a discrete building which contains an array of amazing pieces. The craftsmanship and art on show are breath-taking. Be sure to see this collection.

Thoughtfully curated museum, was amazed at how much was displayed in a relatively modest-sized house. Worth a visit if interested in tiles, tapestries, period metal works.

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
