Malmöhus was originally a minor citadel whose construction was ordered in 1434 by Erik of Pomerania, king of the Kalmar Union which brought Norway, Sweden and Denmark together under a single monarch. In the 16th century King Christian III of Denmark and Norway rebuilt the citadel to create a modern defensive fortress, an imposing castle and the home of the Governors of Malmöhus County.

Animals and Nature

Our common nature – about your nature, our nature and nature closest to us, Colour, Form and Function – about the ingenuity of nature and animals, and Skåne dinosaurs and other really old animals – a playful journey from Earth's prehistoric to the present day with focus on Skåne - a journey of 4.6 billion years!
