The castle itself isn't very interesting but the museum had some quirky and interesting exhibits (technology, menagerie, aquarium, etc.).

Yes, it's old. Very old. There's not a lot more one can say about it. If you're pressed for time, you can skip this without missing much.

We were a bit disappointed. The castle is not "pretty" and thanks to the sloppy renovations in 1930s looks more like an office than a castle. It has a museum in the court.

Interesting exhibits, stunning building- delicious chokladboll and coffee(vegan). My only discomfort was the aquarium where I did not think the tanks were big enough for the marine life especially the octopus :( The staff were friendly and welcoming.

We walked around the malmohus. It's pretty but not as old. They have a museum inside but did not went in, but was popular amongst the locals with kids.

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.
