A museum that celebrates broken relationships with mementos from actual relationships. From the usual love letters and CDs filled with love songs, you'll find toasters, fruit crates and even an axe. This is a great place to check out when in Zagreb,

Not sure what we would find, but the stories of broken relationships were intriguing and you just kept looking at hem all. An example was the Linksys modem on display with the comment "Tried it - not compatible". It was interesting to see the different memento's and the comments, some made you laugh others made you want to cry. About... More

I am so glad I decided to visit this museum. We can all relate to what this museum is about, it is about us and our lives. A very personal collection, a very personal experience. It vitalized my love for humanity. Brutally honest, touching and human. I will remember this place for a long time. Go and see it, you... More

The museum of broken relationships is a gathering of memorabilia from people who have suffered some sort of less - be it a friend, partner, spouse, parent - you name it. The idea is to leave a memento of the relationship along with a description of what it means as a sort of cathartic release from the memories or experiences... More

this place is full of story... and we love the story. you need only 1-2 hours in this place max. it is not big but each item has it own story. I visited the museum with my partner and both of us have a good time reading all the stories.

It's innovative, well-laid out, friendly staff, good souvenirs, but most of all a place where everyone can relate to the personal stories and "artifacts" of broken relationships. Everything is in English and Croatian and submissions are from all over the world. Most clever gift, a large eraser "to erase bad memories."

Interesting to be there within other relations memories also great idea for marketing. They have hundreds of pieces (close to a thousand) in a row of exhibit so if you are lucky you'll see worthy items then mine.
