About
Museum of Broken Relationships is a physical and virtual public space created with the sole purpose of treasuring and sharing your heartbreak stories and symbolic possessions. It is a museum about you, about us, about the ways we love and lose. At its core, the Museum is an ever-growing collection of items, each a memento of a relationship past, accompanied by a personal, yet anonymous story of its contributor. Unlike ‘destructive’ self-help instructions for recovery from grief and loss, the Museum offers the chance to overcome an emotional collapse through creativity - by contributing to its universal collection.

When I walked into this museum, I thought I would be out within the hour based on its size and reviews... It took me almost two hours to view the whole exhibition. It represents a lovely concept and gives us an opportunity to reflect on things we often avoid reflecting on. I understand that this is not for everyone, but for those who seek an experience that enables exploration of emotional experiences and lovely human connections, I recommend you take your time on each piece :)

I genuinely loved this museum. There were beautiful stories, tragic stories, & stories that made you genuinely laugh. I loved the weird and quirky objects that had held sentimental value to people. It wasn’t an overly big museum - probably took 1 - 1.5 hours to get through & read all of the stories, but I’d prefer that over a museum that drags & drags. Reasonable entry price & great cafe attached with cheap aperol spritz. I think I’m going to have to make a donation to the museum to add to the collection! 😂

This was such a fun activity during my day of sightseeing and exploring Zagreb. It is a nice and intimate (and affordable) museum documenting various broken relationships through unique memorabilia. Highly recommend adding it.

This is an amazing concept for a museum, and many of the individual artifacts' stories are compelling, amusing or sad. This is definitely a place to come if you have ever had a relationship, and if you have patience to read each entry and reflect. A group of teenagers when we were there ran through this, absolutely mystified.

Creative, evolves around personal stories from individuals around the world, sharing their stories with personal memories & items. Some of these stories are outstanding connection with one's own life and experiences. The creativity in presentation, thematic topics, and design adds to Zagreb the city as a public artistc space!

The Museum of Broken Relationships is heartbreaking, funny, and human in ways that other museums just don't reach. You will find a series of objects spread across about 6 rooms with a description of how that object ties into the failed relationship. The stories range in length, humor, and heart. There are not many museums where I want to read everything in it, but this was one of them. This is quite simply the best thing to do in Zagreb and one of the best museums I have ever been in. This is a must see.

I highly recommend this museum for stories that will make you laugh, cry and think. it really was moving and beautiful and we spent time reading everything. We felt like we understood and knew the authors even though they stories are anonymous. A really poignant and unique experience. The hot chocolate in the cafe was also great!

An excellent and unique experience that I would strongly recommend to anyone visiting Zagreb. We initially visited expecting it to be a bit of a laugh - and whilst some items were quite funny - the bulk of the museum was pretty emotional and thought-provoking. There is an impressive variety of objects on display, each with its own unique and interesting story explaining them.

It was good to see many different items that people would place in the museum of broken relationships and heart breaks. There are a few that stood out at me the most there were 2 wedding dresses with unique stories to them and show see. Also, there was one somewhat odd but funny at the same time was a dildo in there. You have to read the inscription to understand why. It should be visited by anyone that wants to experience something different.

This is such a clever museum. I love that they try and turn heartbreak in what every definition that means you to you in to a creative project. I think this is a very therapeutic way to move on with your life because in this end everything that happens has to be an ending. Sometimes we put so much emphasis on starting a new beginning that we completely ignore endings, and endings are what make us fearful of beginnings. These stories are real, raw and I love that the change the displays. The breakups can be with people, places, food, inanimate objects, voices, you name it.
