Mr Monkey in the Malmöhus

"It's a combination of interesting and scary!"

Mr Monkey with some carved wood Mr Monkey stumbling in the dark in the plague section

Mr Monkey visited the historical sections of the museum first. Here he learned about the history of Malmö through a series of displays, models, and artefacts. The section on the plague was a lot more worrying, as it took Mr Monkey into a plague pit, surrounded by corpses and rats*, with a plague doctor peering down on him.

You can read about the bizarre costume of the plague doctor at the Wikipedia website.

* Not real rats or corpses, obviously.
