Malmö Museer information
Lonely Planet review
Various museums in and around Malmöhus Slott make up the Malmö Museer. There are cafe-restaurants inside all the museums.
Inside the castle, the intriguing aquarium has a nocturnal hall wriggling with everything from bats to electric eels, and local swimmers like cod and pike. It’s associated with the Naturmuseum (Natural History Museum).
The Malmö Konstmuseum boasts a fabulous collection of Swedish furniture and handicrafts as well as Scandinavia’s largest collection of 20th-century Nordic art, while the Stadsmuseum (City Museum) combines exhibitions on the region’s cultural history with more international themes. Ask for the English-language information sheets at reception or audio guides cost Skr20. The Knight’s Hall contains various late- medieval and Renaissance exhibits, such as the regalia of the order of St Knut. The northwest cannon tower is an atmospheric mix of cannons and shiny armour.
A short distance to the west of Malmöhus Slott, the technology and maritime museum Teknikens och Sjöfartens Hus is home to aircraft, vehicles, a horse-drawn tram, steam engines, and the amazing ‘U3’ walk-in submarine, outside the main building. The submarine was launched in Karlskrona in 1943 and decommissioned in 1967. Upstairs, a superb hands-on experiment room will keep kids (as well as you!) engrossed for ages.
The old Kommendanthuset (Commandant’s House) arsenal, opposite the castle, hosts photography exhibitions.
