This is a really unusual and quirky museum - definitely go if you're visiting Zagreb. There are some funny, poignant and tragic stories of love. Even reading through the visitor book brought a lump to my throat! Really warm and welcoming staff and it is a bargain at around 4 kuna.

After visiting many museums over the past few months while travelling (including the Louvre and Vatican) this one will be remembered amoung them. Only 40kuna a ticket aswell (£4.60ish), I don't understand how people on here have complained about the price. Stories of broken relationships ranging from the funny to the heartbraking. A really fresh idea for a musuem and... More

This mueseum has objects that have contributed to a broken heart - letters, toys, keepsakes. Much of it is lighthearted but some of it is very very sad especially where relationships between children and parents have broken down. Some of the letters that are written are really heartbreaking. The gift shop has some interesting gifts with sayings that are good... More

The items shown there are describing mosty some tragic endings of the relations between people. Could that be between the girl and her drug addicted boyfriend (heroine test) or the doughter mourning her late Mother (a dress). All toghether very interesting but in the same time rather DEPRESSING

This already famous museum proved to be a fantastic idea, there are some wonderful stories with exhibits, and the place is definitely worth a visit. What bothers me is quite expensive ticket for what is offered. I think that exposure of good ideas should be accompanied by investment and efforts and improvements. Opening the same museum in the USA perhaps... More

Dear Mirko L, thank you for your review! Our museum is situated at the old part of town, which sometimes makes it difficult to make it appear as it is brand new. Nevertheless, we always try to make improvements and will do them as soon as possible. Thank you for visiting! Best regards, Brokenships Team More

Be ready to read! Good stories and very unique. Spent about 1 hour reading all of the stories. Not just about couples but also broken families. Great way to spend some time from the cold. The girls working the desk were awesome and very helpful too!

The idea of the museum is funny and great. If you have a sarcastic humor you will love their souvenir shop. You can buy several funny things there.

Very different from anything that I've experienced. Be prepared to read and not all exhibits are that interesting. Some very sad. Some funny and some hard to understand.
