Free mini tour and we enjoyed a quick history lesson. Historic furniture, painters, vases, dishes and much more on display. We did not see the animal side of this.

Much less of an architectural gem than many of the castles in this area. Perhaps explained by its past history as a Treasury and then a Prison. Next to a lovely park near the centre of Malmo

Mine was a great experience. Got to see many interesting artifacts. This is a place which one has to experience personally.

One of the main attractions in Malmo! Really interesting and worth visiting. Very different exhibits though, from aquarium, to historical stuff, paintings and super modern clothes or furniture!! All in one museum !! And very low price too:)

I visited on a sunny day, so was able to get some great pictures. Interesting to visit the museum and find out about the fortifications and the part that this place played in the Danish/Swedish conflict a few centuries ago

Malmøhus is a part of the old fortress build to defend Malmø from the see side. It is well preserved and a home to a number of museums.

As castles go this one is not to bad, its old, has history and is pretty much intact, the problem is that it's trying to be a museum of everything. I mean there are dinosaurs, animal exhibits, textile and clothing displays and even a stuffed...More

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.
