You can walk here from the Slottstradgarden. Basic venue. Nothing super exciting and entrance fees apply.

Only had 1 1/2 days in Malmo so did not have time to go inside. But did walk around outside to take photos.

Once a castle, later a prison and today a museum. Four large museums are located in this large building. Pretty preserved coplex with a lot of history.

The castle itself isn't very interesting but the museum had some quirky and interesting exhibits (technology, menagerie, aquarium, etc.).

It is 40 SEK to enter, children up to 19 is free. It is a brief 15 minute walk from the central train station if you are coming from Copenhagen. There are signs to it everywhere.
