The Museum of Modern Art
The Museum of Modern Art, Moderna Museet Malmö, is located in the premises of the former Rooseum. Between 1988 and 2006 the Rooseum had been a private-owned, internationally renowned centre for contemporary art, started by Fredrik Roos, a banker and art collector. The building itself is from 1900 and had housed steam turbines. Today it is a modern museum of the utmost international quality, with an independent exhibition programme, co-operating with both Moderna Museet in Stockholm and its own international partners. The collection of Moderna Museet holds key pieces of, among others, Marcel Duchamp, Louise Bourgeois, Pablo Picasso, Niki de Saint Phalle, Salvador Dalí, Carolee Schneemann, Henri Matisse och Robert Rauschenberg.

You will find here two full scale copies of medieval cogs, a kind of oak sailing vessel very common in northern Europe during the Middle Ages. Cogs were plank built, had one mast and square rigged single sail. The bigger cog, ”Tvekamp af Elbogen” is entire 29 metres long and is a copy of biggest known cog in the world. The wreck of the original was found outside Skanör, 30 km from Malmö. The other ship, ”Enighet af Elbogen”, is 10 metres shorter and is from approximately 1430. Outside the museum there is “Malmöya”, an medieval quay environment with a number of sheds, shops and a chapel, where medieval scenes can be re-enacted.
