Went to Malmo for the day. Road the boat/canal tour - that was great. Had time for one museum and sadly chose this. There's a stuffed giraffe in the lobby? No reason. Oddest art collection - only computer voted on works shown (about 30 at a time from their vast collection). When I was there - they had a whole... More

Arrived in Malmo early in the morning, this wasn't open yet but we walked all around; the garden behind it and the windmill. Very interesting place. Wish I had more time. Had to catch my train!

Plan for repeat visits as it cannot be absorbed in one. Living history and natural world experience with a good café.

Inexpensive cool museum. Price ticket is 40 SEK if you are more than 18. Free under that. Value for this price is awesome. The new renovated aquarium and vivarium is reallly cool

Malmo Museer is a probably fantastic for children but as an adult I also enjoyed it. The museum has an excellent collection from different periods and nice temporary exhibitions. There is also an aquarium with exotic species and a small space with artificial tropical climate.

The hidden treasure is the old fashioned automat, now a café, located inside the walls next to the museum. A piece of Swedish culinary history itself as well as a really relaxing terrace to sit and enjoy a beer, coffees or pastries.

On our recent trip to Copenhagen our extended family enjoyed a daytrip to Malmo thanks to the train across the Oresund. From the Malmo central train station the castle (slott) is a short walk along the channel then through the Kungsparken. We actually found the castle itself to be something of a letdown - neither a grand old ruin nor... More
