“what a wonderful little museum”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

When told by my friends that I should visit this museum while in Zagreb, I snorted. I could curate that museum, I said, and vowed to avoid it.

While in the center of town with two equally stubborn friends, however, I was pretty much dragged to visit it. I am so glad that I did.

I once worked in a world-class museum and know something about how exhibits are developed and curated. This was a poignant, lovely and completely non-exploitative look at how and why relationships end. Artifacts are personal and come in from around the world, and the short text descriptions, written by the donors, are to the point and moving.

The material is organized in a few rooms. You don't need more than an hour or two to visit, and it is so worth your time.

I've visited grand museums in many imposing cities. Never have I been more aware of the sorrow and hope of a common humanity than in this little place. If you find yourself in Zagreb, this is the one thing you must see.

And I bought a souvenir. A "Bad Memories Eraser." We could all use one of those.

“Most unusual”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

This museum is quite unusual and well worth a visit. It is fairly small, but in a small space, there is plenty to make you think! There is a café attached to the building but I did not sample its delights.

“Interesting concept”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

As soon as I heard about this museum, it was one of the things I couldn't leave Zagreb without seeing. Every single exhibit is fascinating and there is a good balance of sad and amusing stories and items on display so it's not all doom and gloom inside!

Took around an hour to read every single display (they were all so fascinating!) and the museum is well signposted around the city.

Open from 9am - 9pm, entrance fee was 25KR and there was a small gift shop and cafe inside too.

“Fascinating & unusual museum”
Reviewed February 14, 2013 via mobile

This is a fun and interesting museum in a great building up town. Allow your self enough time so you can read through all the little descriptions and stories behind each object.
