“Interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

This place is very small. But it is very interesting and a bit depressing. It explains how people got separated and they show things in connection with the break-up. Go! Nice 45 minutes. But be prepared: it will not be funny and relaxing.

“Unique and intriguing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

This is worth a visit - such a fascinating window into the human heart. Some funny, some sad... our personal favorite was the 'intimate wash' exhibit. You'll have to see it for yourself.

“A quirky museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

The objects aren't art and the captions aren't poetry but put them together and one gets imaginative stores about many different relationships with many different outcomes

“Poignant, Unique”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

I might not have gone to this museum if a local hadn't strongly recommended it. The museum houses a collection of items donated by people along with narratives describing how those items represent a broken relationship of the donor's. The stories are fascinating and, ironically, the museum itself feels like a labor of love. It's located at the top of the funicular from the new town to the old town and so works well as one explores Zagreb.

“Just to depressing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

Honeslty, I didn't enjoy this experience it was to depressing and sad. I found that showing objection of broken relationships very pointless and kinda not artistic enough to deserve a "museum" kind of environment.
