Malmo Museum

Vacation Travel Guide

Find a collection of museums dedicated to art, history and the natural world set in a 15th-century Renaissance castle.

Malmo Museum is a collection of museums set in Sweden’s oldest remaining Renaissance castle and its surrounding grounds. Learn about the castle’s history, spot tropical fish at an aquarium, view photography exhibitions and contemporary Nordic art and step inside a submarine.

Getting around the museums is easy since the exhibition halls are closely grouped inside the castle and along Malmohusvagen Street. There’s a single ticket price for all of the museums and free admission for visitors under 19 years old.

Start in the castle’s main hall and rent a reasonably priced audio guide to hear stories about the kings and queens that once resided here. Allow about two hours for this tour. If you are visiting in summer, join the free guided tour on Saturday and Sunday afternoons.

Go to the Malmo Art Museum to see Nordic art from the 16th century to the present day. Find work by contemporary Scandinavian artists, such as Annika von Hausswolff and Dan Wolgers.

The Natural History Museum focuses on the animal kingdom. See a life-sized giraffe and displays of 12,000 bird species. Younger visitors can enjoy spotting piranhas and pythons in the aquarium.

Outside the castle entrance is the Kommendanthuset (Commander’s House). Rotating photography exhibitions take place in the Room for Photography, and a learning center aims to educate children about Nordic customs. Nearby is the Technology and Maritime Museum. Step aboard a real submarine, watch documentaries about the history of Malmo and learn about the evolution from hand-powered machinery to steam, gasoline and electric engines.

Malmo Museum is a short walk from many of the attractions in Malmo’s city center, such as Kungsparken and Stortorget. Pay-and-display parking is available in front of the castle. The museums are open daily, except for selected public holidays. Find the complete opening hours in the Museums section of the official Malmo Stad website.
