Moderna Museet Malmö is a museum of modern and contemporary art located in Malmö, Sweden. It is a part of the state-owned Moderna Museet but has an independent exhibition programme.[1] The museum was opened in December 2009.

The main building of the museum originally held an electricity plant established in 1901. It was later transformed into an exhibition hall which housed the Rooseum Centre for Contemporary art between 1988 and 2006. Before Moderna Museet Malmö moved in, the interior was transformed again and a new annex was built.[1]
