Even if you're not a museum lover (like me), this is the one museum you'll want to see in your life!! It is a really original and thought provoking experience, I had a hundred and one different sentiments when reading the sad stories of people from all over the world, and even now, many months later, I still feel like...

The museum is interesting but very small. Good thing tickets aren't expensive! You should visit if you have extra time but don't go out of your way.

My girlfriend and I had a couple of hours to kill in Zagreb and decided to visit the museum of broken relationships to kill some time. It is a very interesting concept with all the exhibits being of no monetary value. The descriptions that accompany the exhibits really bring them to life, some exhibits are funny whilst some are sad.... More

This new museum concept is quite interesting and poignant. The objects, many of which look like every day objects or even trash, are each donated by someone involved in a now broken relationship. With each object is a story about the object's significance in the doomed relationship. There were stories that made us laugh, made is cry, and even made... More

This is one of the more interesting museums I've visited. It's got a great collection based on one single piece and concept. The collection has grown based solely on donations of items related to, you guessed it, broken relationships. Admission is reasonable, and it's open far later than most Zagreb attractions. It's worth a visit if you're nearby! In fact,... More

Out of the ordinary, you can get lost through the stories of each of the object. Just remember to choose your favourite one, because certainly you will recommend this museum to a friend.

A novel and fascinating little museum. Displays contributed objects with brief stories about relationships that were or were not successful.

Ok, it started as a tribute to lost love but now it is a collection of curiosities that were given to the museum and that remind the givers of their broken relationships (as the name suggests). There you can find a garden gnome, axe or mobile phone all with their storries about the relationships that didn't work...
