I have never stayed so long in a museus as I stayed on this one... It is very small and you may see everything in an hour. It was really fun to read all those brokens relationships stories. Some were super funny and some super sad. Really Good!! Zagreb rocks!!!

I have only moderate patience for museums, but this one was both fascinating and right-sized to keep almost anyone's engagement. The museum "exhibits" (artifacts would be a better word) all come with stories that you can't help but (a) sympathize with and (b) feel fortunate that they're not about you!

This is a fun museum documenting objects with memories of all sorts of broken relationships. They have been collected from all parts of the world. Maybe you'll find something from your town - I did! Don't forget the gift shop.

An unforgettable experience, you live in people's stories and experiences of their love. Creepy exciting and makes you think. A must and every one thinks it is not interesting to you at the end you'll be sorry for it. Enjoy all there and read a story like this in your love story.

If you can't enjoy this museum than you're a complete herb. Yes it's small to moderate in size but thats to be expected from a unique museum such as this. Despite its size you could spend upwards of 45 minutes in there if you read every display. The people working there were fun too unlike the uptight stiffs who work... More

I recommend visiting the Museum of Broken Relationships when in Zagreb. While it is smaller than you would expect, (maybe because some of the items are in a traveling display) it had many interesting displays including a suicide note left for her daughter, a wedding dress and an axe used to destroy an ex's belongings. There are some heartbreaking stories... More

Stories of loss on display, more to read than visual, but it is an interesting concept. Feels like pages of a book of personal stories on display; if it were a book, wouldn't feel the need to visit this, but must admit we were glad we visited.

It was OK but a lot smaller than expected. Seemed to focus more on retail but some of the artwork was very interesting

A website we had researched before coming, had said this was a wide-ranging museum about broken relationships both personal and political. So we went along expecting a varied, balanced mixture of both: some moving personal stories, and some interesting history about alliances and the consequences when these fail. It was disappointing to find we had been misled: the museum features... More

A lot of reading, a peaceful environment to ponder the meaning of relationships and here examples of how they ended. Moving and mostly in English.
