Quirky and entertaining, but not much too it. You'll think of Orhan Pamuk's Museum of Innocence in Turkey.

And you may visit even after 9pm! Very touching museum, unlike anything else you've seen. Not to be missed.

Experience that takes you off beaten path. Interesting concept and stories of objects and the stories involving the past broken relationships. Not your usual museum at times funny and depressing.

If you are the type of person who enjoys different, creative ideas or have had enough of the Grand Masters, go to the Museum of Broken Relationships in Old Town Zagreb. It is a collection of amazing remnants of relationships gone sour or over along with accompanying interesting stories. You will be intrigued!

They display letters, an axe, dresses, pictures, high heels, wireless router and many more. Each comes with a description or a story. There is a cafe as well and the museum opens until 9 or 10pm at night.

Really enjoyed this little museum. Some of the stories were really heartbreaking, and some were very funny and light hearted!

Interesting stories about broken relationships and momentos that represent the relationship. Was a perfect place to be during some rain. Not really "Croatian" but a nice diversion.

I don't understand what's the hype about this place. First of all, it's not even a museum, it's definitely a business.. got all the old stuffs that people don't want to be reminded of broken relationships and put them together.. basically that's all! Please go somewhere else,. I got bored in just 5minutes.

Not your usual museum but I found it very interesting. Was a struggle sometimes to read all the exhibits if it is busy. You can get a bit sick of churches and museums and this is a nice break from the norm.

This is an enjoyable and novel exhibit. The exhibit consists of donated items. Each item is related to a broken relationship and is accompanied by a written explanation of the item's significance. Some are sad but resigned (broken romantic relationships), some are relieved (divorce from an unsuitable spouse) and one was heart-breaking (a mother's suicide note). This museum has a... More
