The exhibits in the unique museum rotate, so on a return visit--all new items. This time the sections about parents was especially touching, Not unusual to see mixtures of tears and laughter as you read these personal and true entries of objects, letters, and clothes. a unique museum that I will always revisit each time that I am in Zagreb

I was hoping for more drama in the stories but most of them were average at best. It was kind of boring. The cost to get in was 25kn/person and we visited all exhibits while spending only 30min in the museum. I would spend my time at other locations if I were to do it over again.

After reading the reviews I wanted to go here and fortuitously stumbled across this great little place on my first evening in Zagreb. I got lost in the world of each little exhibit! A must to see. Looks like the donating of many of the items has been a greatly therapeutic act for many. The 25 kuna was a good... More

Concept is unique, I'll give them that. But the thought of going through other folks mementos left my wife wishing for a roll of mentos, so we didn't go in this time.

Visited this museum on honeymoon with my husband and we both really enjoyed it. It's such a uniquely brilliant idea and the stories you read and you look through people's donated artefacts are hilarious and heart breaking in equal measure. Well worth a visit if you're in Zagreb and fancy doing something a little bit different!

Odd little museum, dedicated to the ephemera of failed relationships. Mixes artifacts and commentary. Some seems disposable and silly, but some of the stories about relationships ending were moving. Seems like it would be sad, but actually, I left feeling hopeful about our ability to move on. Only takes about 30-45 minutes to walk through.

A different museum, with love letters and personal belongings from broken relationships, accompanied with a letter. Most of them sad, but also there are a couple of funny ones.

Just about all of us have been there at some time, and the exhibits really tugged at the heartstrings, and brought back all manner of memories, both happy and sad. A tribute to our human emotions. Very well presented, and it was an hour or so extremely well spent.

Maybe this is not for everyone, but we were personally moved by these wonderful stories, some admittedly heartbreaking. Anyone with any empathy will be interested in the narratives from around the world.. The cafe is also excellent.

It was raining after my visit to the St. Mark's Church when I passed by the museum. Heard about it before I came to Zagreb but just wasn't interested about it. The entrance ticket is very affordable so I decided to give it a look. I was not disappointed at all. The exhibits are interesting and the story behind each... More
