So impressed by the range of exhibits here. Amazing aquarium and vivariums with good info in English for many of the creatures. The history of the Roma was well described for such a sensitive national topic. Good Danish/swedish history explanations. Cafe was local produce and good value - could easily make a day of the visit

Great spot on cold or rainy days! Has a restaurant with good quality lunches, a museum and aquarium! My kids love it! Cheap for those buying an annual card or just popping in once! When you pay the entrance here you also have access to the Technical museum which is just great!

Talking about castle, I would expect something totally different. This building looks like an old factory or prison. The surroundings are however nice. When i was there, it was closed, thus cannot rate the inside.

This museum is confusing: A strange mix of an aquarium, a fauna museum, N old castle and an art museum. Who would like to see everything at the same time? It is not even divided intonsections with clear signs. So one is left with the impression that it is confusing.

This visit should be paired with the Technology & Maritime Museum nearby. You can use the same ticket for entry and no need to pay twice. I really enjoyed reading a bit of history of the war.

Interesting museum with a nice aquarium. The entrance fee is very affordable and you have many different things to see. The visit took us approximatly 2hours without the maritime museum.

Not far from Malmo central station, it's a must to get a flavour of the history of the conflicts between Denmark and Sweden. Home of royalty from both sides and eventually a prison. Complex place with many nooks and crannies to see stuff. We got lost a couple of times. Allow a 60-90 minutes depends on how much you want... More
