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.
