Allow at least an hour to read/see all the stories. Some are funny - a couple will break your heart. Shows that all people have sadness in their lives, and that everyone deals with it differently. Very interesting.

We had read about this in our guidebook and having gone through a traumatic split myself, it seemed like the perfect thing. This was actually one of my favorite museums to visit while in Croatia. The exhibits themselves were interesting as there were pieces that were new and old, but the stories that went along with them are what really... More

It's a collection of things people have donated that remind them of a broken relationship - or help them get over it by giving the object away! There are funny, sad and thought-provoking stories. It made us appreciate the age and countries we live in.

What an amazing display of the human condition. I laughed out loud, I shed some tears. An amazing collection of personal tragedies and triumphs!

Accidentally passed this place during our after business evening walk. Given the late opening hours we decided to visit and simply loved it. This museum touches the heart and soul, with its sometimes sad, sometimes humoristic, surprising, moving and tragic stories. Highly recommended! Tip: a visit takes about an hour.

Visited on a recommendation from Rick Steves guidebook and very glad we did. Entrance fee was only 10 or 20 Kn and was really one of the coolest parts of our one day visit in Zagreb. Take the time to read each story - there are funny, sad, happy, and strange stories each with a "memento." Guarantee you'll find a... More

Very strange museum, you can't help but read about the various relationships and their stories. It feels quite intrusive but some of the stories are very interesting!

Dear isoton, thank you for your review! Each donator told their story, not somebody else's, hope it loosens your feeling about being 'intrusive'. Thank you for visiting! Best regards, Brokenships Team More

Interestingly done generally. There were memorabilia donated by various people from around the world together with write-ups on their broken relationships. It would take at least 90 mins to go through all the exhibits. I found the shorter write-ups more interesting and some one-liners even "sad" but humourous. A few were tiringly long, almost like reading a short novel. Generally... More

Interesting concept for a museum. It's not the objects themselves that provoke interest but the stories behind the objects that are powerful. Some exhibits are hilarious (eg the axe from some German guy who chopped up all his ex's furniture!) to the absolutely heartbreaking.... It makes you realise the power of human relationships and reflect your own emotions. Be prepared... More
