One of the stranger museums I've ever visited. Each broken relationship is represented by an object from the relationship and some text which usually explains the reason for the choice. Definitely thought provoking, occasionally funny and sometimes tragic. Worth a visit if you are in the city. A museum that makes you wonder even more about the stories that weren't... More

I loved this museum. It's completely different to usual museums that present artefacts of things that are old and unreachable. The museum presents real life stories and memorabilia that you can relate to and understand. The stories next to the items ranged from hilarious to heartbreaking. I particularly enjoyed that each story provides a time-frame and a location, allowing you... More

I am from Zagreb and I went to check it out and it is a really funny museum. It is full of great ideas and exhibits. Stories behind some of them are unimaginable. I would recommend it especially as it is in the nicest part of the city so on your way to see the Church of Sveti Marko, you... More

Poor idea, even weaker realization. It turned out to be boring and unpleasant experience. This is how can I describe exhibition of many not connected things with pathetic histories attached. I highly recommend not to go there to retain your mental health and some money in wallet...

I had really positive attitude towards this museum, but ended totally disappointed even before reaching the end of exhibition. Some of exhibits was probably intented to make impression on visitors and to be honest, maybe they did on some of them. Totally not my pair of shoes, though. Even with assumption that the musem was designed for people different than... More

You didn't find it interesting to say the least, but you did share a story that fits your relationship with our museum: ''We tried. Not compatible.'' ;)... More

Loved this museum, moved between laughing out loud and almost reduced to tears with the exhibits and stories. Thanks must go to all the people who donated the snippets of their lives. If you are short of time in Zagreb and only want to do one inside thing, take an hour or two out of your day to visit this.... More

Open late and right past the funiciular in Upper Town, this is a unique location. Need to take time to read the stories, as the items themselves have little significance otherwise. Very worth the trip, though not ideal for very young kids without patience to read.

This quirky little place is one of the highlights of Zagreb. It's not large, but delving into the stories behind the exhibits is well worth the time you invest in doing so - some funny, some touching, all of them lifted straight from the lives of real people. The only visitors likely to find them underwhelming are those who have... More

It's different and interesing, but the energy seemed a bit heavy for me. The ideia is quite innovative, but I'm still old school for museums conceptions.
