Eastern Inspirations
This year, the museum will collaborate with the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Design, showing a number of fashions on dressmakers’ dummies placed around the Islamic Collection on the 3rd and 4th floors. The clothes are designed by students at the Academy and are inspired by Islamic fine and decorative art. Some of the students will be present on Culture Night to describe how the project came about. The exhibition will be open during the whole autumn school break.

Henna Harem
Visitors to the henna salon will be able to have their hands decorated with the loveliest patterns. Nicole Kruckenberg and two skilled tattoo artists will keep the Henna Harem open from 18.00 to 23.00. Only natural colors are used, but each guest must be sure that his or her skin is not allergic to them. Children must be accompanied by an adult. There may be waiting time.

The tea salon
Zia Mouna’s “Thé à la Menthe” tea salon will occupy the tent in the courtyard, selling delicious light Moroccan dishes and famous mint tea. Pay in cash or with MobilePay.
