Oh the irony. The Museum of Failure has closed.
I would recommend the toilet museum in my hometown if it wasn't for the fact that there is basically nothing else to do there.

Anyway, I agree with Johnny. If you want to visit just one major city, Copenhagen is the better choice.

I'm not going to recommend you to go to Malmö, it's mostly an industrial town.
But just next to it is Lund which is a fairly small medieval student town. It has a great atmosphere.

Visby is a must on your list. Try to visit during the medieval week in the beginning of August. But beware of the lack of hotel rooms.
Unless you don't mind staying in a tent. There are a whole load of people in medival clothes staying in the fields next to the town wall during that week.
More info on the official homepage. Medieval Week on Gotland[^]

One thing you need to keep in mind is that Sweden is a lot like Oregon.
It's full of hipsters and forest. And if you are searching for your roots you'll find enough of both. Smile | :)
But if you want the essence (of the positive picture) of Sweden you really should visit Mariefred as well.
