Went with a group of friends and the name attracted our attention so we went in. Im not sure what we expected,love poems maybe or pictures,something artistic and profound. What it we found was a collection of odd little everyday items. It was very confusing. It looked like a collection of stuff that your ex didn't want to take with... More

The concept is smart and creative. You'll get to see some artifact donated from across the globe together with their story of ... yes, broken relationship. Good ambiance to have a reflection and memorizing our own experiences. By the way, an espresso bar next to the museum interests me more.

As there aren't many attractions in Zagreb, this museum, among all, is the most interesting for us, as it's quite one of a kind. Exhibits include objects (toys, songs, clothes, gifts, etc.) donated by people from around the world with their stories of broken relationships. Every story is different, but somehow you find it familiar because you could see certain... More

This museum is certain unique. It shows an object, often an ordinary object, and then tells the tragic love story that goes with it. There are only 4 small rooms. To my thinking the stories would have been easier to read if this was a web site. The actual objects were mostly very plain. But, you might like the museum.... More

I can't say I 'loved' the Museum of Broken Relationships, but I certainly left more confident and happy with my marriage! There were funny stories interspersed, but overall they were mostly depressing and sad tales of things gone wrong. It's a one of a kind place, though, and I wouldn't dissuade anyone from going.

A great small museum set in the old town. Great stories, interesting letters, objects and clothing from all around the world. Small gift shop and coffee shop as well.

Unique and satisfying, this small museum displays trinkets, letters, stuffed animals, wedding dresses and so much more, provided by jilted lovers around the world from long-ago relationships. It is true, the place is small, but it still took a good couple hours to read every single attached commentary for all 100 items on display. The stories are entertaining, sad, funny,... More

This is a place to go if you are in Zagreb... Funny, romantic place where you can see you not the only one in love issues :)
