Very informative and suits a wide variety of interests. Due to time constraints we were unable to see the whole museum, but what we saw had a good assortment of everything. I really enjoyed learning about the journey of the castle- Fortress, prison, refuge, museum.

Can visit the castle and museum on one 40 kronor ticket. Kids are free. Could spend at least a day and then relax at the park. Lots for kids to touch at the sites.

Quite a lot to see here covering a range of backgrounds. But the castle is confusing with steps everywhere and quite poor signage. However bits for everyone and a pretty good value restaurant.

Malmohus is a castle but it doesn't look like it cause in the past it was a prison or a military base I'm not sure. Although it is very curious to visit it cause it seems that it's floating. Inside you can visit the museum...More

I was amazed for awhile looking on those colorful fishes, so beautiful. I enjoyed the aquarium, so we spend a bit longer time checking the small animals. The art exhibit was also interesting.

If you are walking the park it is worth walking over and checking this old fort out. It's fairly big. It's not as cool as a lot of the old castles in Europe but it was worth checking out. And the water around it has...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.
