My husband and I stumbled upon this museum and hesitated to go in. We figured "why not" and went in. It was a fascinating experience, full of poignant and touching mementos with well Written stories to help illustrate heartfelt experiences of love and loss. Not what you'd expect. A Serious window into the heart. Go!

This museum was really worth a visits great concept, did not know what to expect but it was really worthwhile sharing people's stories of relationships that have touched them and in some cases moulded them

Fun "museum" chronicling the path of love affairs with mementos from actual experiences. So different it's worth the time to visit.

An unlikely subject for a museum perhaps but this small gem turns out to be one of the most beguiling attractions in Zagreb, if not Croatia.

The name speaks for itself. It's full of humor and heartbreaking stories. There is no other museum like this in the world, and you feel like you, yourself, lived the stories of these people vicariously. I guarantee you'll leave the museum feeling like a changed person.

This museum was a surprise as I wasn't expecting much. Indeed, it took a few minutes in the museum before I could get into the content. But once you do, it is a fascinating journey exploring the diverse experiences we can all relate too..... Human relationships. I recommend it to all adults who don't mind reading a short stories. Wouldn't... More

At first, the description of this might make you think your just going to get depressed, but this museum is more cathartic and inspiring than simple descriptions allow. Each object is explained with an accompanying story, some are short and vindictive, others long and heartbreaking, but all are compelling. Do not miss.

Very interesting museum. It holds mementos from broken relationships (both romantic and others, e.g., mother-child), each accompanied by a story. Some are lighthearted and funny, others are quite sad or upsetting. It was 20 kuna for a student entry. Check out beautiful St Mark's church while you're in the area.

This was memorable--provided a quiet, reflective time during a day filled with much sightseeing. The exhibits reveal intimate stories of ordinary people and provide a poignant connection with strangers.
