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

Yes, it's old. Very old. There's not a lot more one can say about it. If you're pressed for time, you can skip this without missing much.

We were a bit disappointed. The castle is not "pretty" and thanks to the sloppy renovations in 1930s looks more like an office than a castle. It has a museum in the court.

Interesting exhibits, stunning building- delicious chokladboll and coffee(vegan). My only discomfort was the aquarium where I did not think the tanks were big enough for the marine life especially the octopus :( The staff were friendly and welcoming.

We walked around the malmohus. It's pretty but not as old. They have a museum inside but did not went in, but was popular amongst the locals with kids.

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

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.
