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

If you are in Malmo this is a must see. The Museum gives a great insight into the history of the area. There is the castle with good exhibits to view. There is also an aquarium which is great fun to see, expecially for kids. The entrance, which is 40kr, also includes the entrance to the Science & Maritime Museum.... More

We happened to visit on a day when it was free. It's a small but good quality aquarium with a diverse range of fish and animals. Worth the walk to go and see it.

We were only in Malmo for one day and were advised to visit this site by the Tourist Information, at Central Station. It was very cold, and snowing, but was only a fifteen minute walk to the museum from the station. Parts of the museum are very old, especially the gun turrets at each end. These were full of history,... More

The complex originally housed Danish and then Swedish royalty in the 15th to 17th centuries, then served as a prison ( damaged by fire set by inmates) and asylum for refugees in WWII but now part of the touristic attraction combining the technical museum adjacent...very inexpensive, has a historic museum and aquarium, coffee shop...rcommended

This castle is a very well done transformation into a museum, a historical castle, and an aquarium all in one. You need about 2 hours to see it all, and the admission includes the technology museum across the street. If you want to understand Danish/Swedish historical relationship, this is the place.

The castle is nice but the museum inside is very good. A few temporary exhibitions run constantly, but the best part is the old castle residence, where you have a museum of the history of the castle and of the city.
