You can walk here from the Slottstradgarden. Basic venue. Nothing super exciting and entrance fees apply.

Once a castle, later a prison and today a museum. Four large museums are located in this large building. Pretty preserved coplex with a lot of history.

Most of the time spent here would e nice for kids, and is also the only English area. The historic part of the castle was unfortunately only in Swedish. Still nice to see. They opened a new exhibition on the day, so entrance was free.

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.

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.
