    Epic!!!!
    So glad we planned this on our 7 day nordic tour. Excellent experience and the tasting area was epic. I had 10 samples..... bugs and spicy stuff happily bypassed but my 13 yr old, went through 22 of 23 totally unphased. Unfortunately he had to be 15 for the 9 scoville hot sauce, so have to go back in 18 months so he can claim the special t-shirt! Definitely recommend as long as you have a strong stomach.

    Disgusting food, great experience
    I guess this is the first and only time in my life I am writing a good review even though the food was disgusting. It's such a nice experience and we had a lot of fun. The best part was when we were trying some of the food we saw previously. Hugo is such a nice guy and he made our food degustation not that disgusting. There is a chilli challenge that it's just insane. A must if you come to Malmö.

    Good for all ages, try out the disgusting food museum
    It was an amazing experience and I was very fascinated by it. It is appropriate for all ages (me being a 12 year old) and i would recommend it to anyone. The staff is very nice and they made it very engaging. It is very fun to touch, smell and taste the foods.

    I ♥️ stinky cheese
    Really fun, it's something a bit different to do. What's interesting is the different perspectives on show, some things you'd find normal others find repulsive. Simone did a fantastic job of taking us through the tasting (surprisingly, it was the salty licorice that got me, bleh). Highly recommend if you've got a bit of time in Malmö.

    So fun!
    So interesting to read about all the disgusting things in the world (and scandals). Even though I only tasted 1 thing. It was so much fun to see my friends eating the different things. One of my friends did taste all of them👏🏽 the employees was so sweet and knew so much about everything! Joy talked us through everything, and made it so much fun!

    Is your stomach ready..?
    The Disgusting Food Museum is a unique and memorable experience! The exhibit allows for some smelling and touching experiences, with information about eating practices that are often worse than the food itself. We enjoyed the tasting bingo at the end, my 9 year old would happily eat bugs, but the cheese was avoided! It was great to have an opportunity to sample the famous Swedish surströmming as well. A shout out to Hugo who was especially attentive and friendly, and gave us a great sampling adventure.

    disgusting but nice presentation
    Managed to eat everything, I think I will have the taste of the cheeses in my mouth for all eternity. Karin Was very nice and did a good job explaining every food and how to properly eat the different chilli concentrates. Was nice, would recommend!

    Highlight in Malmö
    Very intriguing concept for a museum. I've wanted to go to this museum for a while now and decided to stop by when I was in Copenhagen/Malmö. The exhibition was quite small but fascinating, the food displayed was from over the world, challenging your conception of what is deemed 'disgusting' and what isn't, without exoticizing any culture. There was a tasting bar with a bingo game as well, where we got to try a variety of foods ranging from dried bugs, worms to surströmming and durian. I was at the bar when it was quite empty and was assisted by Simone, who was very knowledgeable and friendly. We chatted about the food we were familiarized with growing up and how our perception of those foods changed as we got more concious about the environment and how others perceive our cultures. All in all a very worthy experience, but make sure you don't eat a big meal before visiting, just in case :)

    Great but disgusting eperience
    Visited the museum on a rainy day in Malmö and had a better time than expected. The facts about the food items were very interesting to read and it was also fun to see stuff from your own home country. Its also awesome that you get to try some disgusting food at the end and also get to do a heat challenge. My guide Karina was very fun, friendly and knowledeable about the food items she presented us with. Would definitely recommend if you want to visit a museum thats fun and different

    A magical place for food lovers
    We, two adults and four children (9-12), had a hugely fun and different experience. Nasty facts, even worse scent experiences and an incomparable ending at the bar counter. The guide Viktor was phenomenal and challenged the more reserved in the group to test larvae etc. Definitely worth a visit!

It's expensive to get in here but it's really good fun. The entrance price obviously covers the cost of the fresh foods there for you to try.

The staff will hand you a sick bag on your way in and there were a few people heaving on the way round.
You're encouraged to use smell jars to smell certain foods and can even try some at the end.
Something very different and a lot of fun.
I'd highly recommend it!

I enjoyed seeing and being able to smell and taste a few of the different foods and drinks on display.
Good information about the origin and history behind every item.
Great to be able to taste the roasted and fried bugs, now I know I will never eat those again! 😅

Only downside in my opinion was that it was very crowded in a small space so it was difficult to move around and look at certain displays.

The museum its self is small and compact but lots to see and read. Where this place really stands out is the tasting section where you get to test your self with some unique foods, which you would never normal get to try. This is only elevated by the staff who were all amazing and walk you through your tasting experience, explaining each food and what to expect. We were guided by Joy who was wonderful and made the whole experience even better and supported us in a food journey.
Really worth a visit if you’re in town - the price seems a bit expensive but feels well worth it when you finish!

The staff are great and do there job fantastically well. Very friendly, bit of craic and took care of the customers that were struggling.

I’d seen the Museum on YouTube and it seemed great on an interactive level but it’s not so much for 90%. Most of the “exhibits” are pretty benign, an odd flavoured Kit Kat, a Brewdog beer in a novelty presentation, a whisky you can get in most bars, black pudding and haggis and SPAM. PS Haggis doesn’t taste like liver as is claimed, it’s much nicer.

The most ridiculous exhibit that we burst out laughing at as we started saying I’ve eaten most of this segment was Coriander! Coriander! It’s a herb that’s a staple in a lot of cooking across the globe.

The other ones are mainly cheese that smells a bit. A Roquefort was on the list…..

Towards the end it felt like a vegan/environmental messaging museum. I went to be disgusted and switch off not to get a “message”.

The main reason to go is the tasting bar as you leave. Again the staff are great. Had a mix of insects, cheese, fish and hot sauces. We managed most of them. Feel like the bar could be raised on the disgust factor.

It’s not something youd go to twice but the cost for once is pretty steep especially when you’re looking at 20% of the products that you can buy in a supermarket.

It is truly a one of a kind experience. Amazing really that there are so many really strange and as the name suggests, disgusting, things that are not only food, but in many cases considered as delicatessen.
The museum consists of one room with a few rows of displays. Most of the displays are not the actual food, but some type of replica. Some displays have jars that you can open and smell. You are handed a bag to throw up in if that should be needed. Which it apparently is quite often. The sign at the side of the tasting bar (yes, you can test a few of the dishes at the end of the tour) says that today it was 1 day since last person that threw up on place.
For the price you pay I would expect a bit more, maybe some other interactive displays.

Hi Anna, Thanks for your review. Yes, there are indeed many strange and unusual dishes around the world, and we pride ourselves in collecting them in one place. We have tried to have as much real food as possible, around 65% of the items on display are the real thing as eaten around the world, with another 10% being the real thing but not as eaten (for example a real spider, but not cooked, but rather taxidermied). We focus most of our interactivity on the tasting bar, where you can try over twenty different items for yourself, in addition to the 9 smelling jars.

Some very cool exhibits, especially the section on poison food. I was a bit nervous that too much of the experience would be focused around actually tasting the food, but there is still plenty of interesting info to learn even if you don't want to try anything.
The exhibits were surprisingly thought-provoking at times, and there is some content that could be upsetting but it felt justified and appropriate in this context.
When it came to the tasting, our guide Momo was very welcoming and knowledgeable and put us all at ease. It was very cool to get to try the foods in a relaxed and safe environment. I definitely recommend this to people looking for a different kind of museum experience .

Fantastic experience - It was SO interesting and did actually challenge ones view upon what can be ...or should.. be eaten.

I had two kids (8 and 14 years) with me, and this was the first museum ever were they actually wanted to learn about what we saw. It was so fun, and the smell challenges was both fun and good for home videos 👍😂

The tasting bar was great - I never would have thought tjat my youngest would be fine eating bugs and worms. Such a great experience for all of us.

The premises are not very big, but well planned - Expect to use about an hour and a half. We will come again for sure.

Reading about this museum being a hidden gem in Malmö, we stopped by to check out ourselves.
I was afraid it would be like a funny museum that just makes you be disgusted a d go home.
The name is what brings tourists there but the vision behind it is what makes them write good reviews!
Had very much fun learning about unusual foods in different cultures and understanding how one's perception of taste and disgust is culturally embossed.
The staff was very nice, helpful and had a lot of interesting facts&stories to tell.
The tasting is not for everyone tho but us as adventurous foodies really loved it!
Not every day you get the chance to try this extraordinary foods for yourself and let go of prejudices spread.

Must go!
