Trip Planner: Europe / Sweden / Skane County / Malmo / Malmohus Castle
As the oldest castle in Scandinavia, Malmohus Castle stands as a beautiful red brick fortress and adjoins the castle built in the 1530s. An important stronghold of Denmark, this castle-turned-prison tells the story of its captives. For five years the castle imprisoned Mary, Queen of Scots' third husband, James Hepburn, 4th Earl of Bothwell. Today the castle is home to a museum of ancient art, modern photography, taxidermy, and prison cells for touring. Limited signage is provided in English.

Malmohus Castle reviews
Not a lot in the castle as such but lots to see in attached museum, much more than I expected. Includes galleries, exhibitions, concert hall, aquarium / reptiles, some stuffed animals in diaramas...

After finishing my tour of the Park and Garden located nearby, I visited this castle at 11:00 a. m. There are many things to see at the various floors of the museum and the old areas of the Castle...

It’s a lovely museum with a display of arts, history and etc. some interesting modern contemporary exhibits as well. Entry fee is very cheap and you have access to the castle as well. Description is very clear and easy to follow. I enjoyed the experience.
Another great example of Northern European Brick Gothic architecture... The castle grounds are a must see, and I'm sure are spectacular any time of year. The museum is a great little gateway into the medieval times with histories and explanations to the ever evolving landscape of Malmö. I reckon it is a must see for any castle aficionados.
