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.

    Different kind of museum
    A different museum for a different experience. Wouldn't recommend a visit for children or people who don't like reading much as the whole place is a collection of items together with descriptions. Personally spent there about 1.5h but depends on how fast one reads. For the right people an amazing visit.
    Dear Elizabete, we are glad it was the perfect choice for you. Thanks for the recommendation for those who may and may not enjoy it. Cheers from the Brokenships team!

    Quirky
    Thought it was funny, sad and in some parts heartbreaking 💔. Really enjoyed it. Not for you if you don’t like reading! Cafe outside was lovely to wait for the slot! Go up the nearby tower while you wait also! Would recommend 😊
    Dear Samantha, we are glad you enjoyed the museum and our cafe. Cheers from the Brokenships team!

    Unique
    The appeal of this unique museum is obvious and it excels at that, objects in it are real objects and the stories accompanying them are real human experiences. You are bound to resonate with some of them, others, you will have a very good understanding and sympathy for. It is an experience that would be like a counter-balance to the polished perfection that you see in positive-only stories on various social platforms. People go through sweet, easy, wonderful experiences, but they also go through intense hardships and heartbreaks. However, in high season, be prepared to crowd in a cue and stand at the exhibits and to read for over 1 1/2 hours. This is not at all a museum where you take a quick tour. To get the most of it you have to take your time and read, a lot, and process the story for a bit, before continuing to next one. We did visit them on an exceptionally hot summers day, and though I think they have at least 2 AC units in there, they would need double the cooling power to make it comfortable.
    Dear Mihak, thanks for such a thoughtful and nice review. Each of the objects that are desplayed, were donated by different people around the world, and this is what makes of our museum such a human experience. Best regards, from the Brokenships team!

    Unique and thought-provoking museum
    Interesting little museum that will take up about 20-40 minutes of your time. Has about six rooms, each containing items that are somehow linked to a failed relationship, with a plaque telling the unique stories. Definitely a unique concept, not very expensive. Worth a visit
    Dear folyom thanks for your review, we hope you enjoyed your visit. If reading all the desplayed stories, it could take up to one hour, always depending on each person of course. Warm regards from the Brokenships team!

    Interesting!
    It is interesting, there are so many stories of heartbreaks… some of them are really sad, some are funny. It’s a very nice concept, I wouldn’t go again tho. The stuff was nice :) It has different languages available, which is good for those who don’t speak English nor Croatian.
    Dear Gomelina, we are glad you enjoyed. Next year we will have a new exhibition with many different stories, so we do hope you will visit again, Best regards, from the Brokenships team.

    Quirky!
    I quite enjoyed this odd museum, whereas my wife thought otherwise! Some of the items had rather sad stories behind them - others were laugh out loud funny. We visited on a Sunday at about 11am and it was a bit too busy for comfort frankly. Good loos and a little cafe which is excellent value. About an hour for a visit.
    Dear jw6969, thanks for your review. We hope our museum didn't create a great disagreement in your couple 😅. In any case, you could send us your objects! Best regards from the Brokenships team!

    For something different…
    This museum was a really good way to spend an hour or so in Zagreb. Filled with items donated from ‘broken relationships’, it was fascinating to read the stories attached to the items. Some were sad, some were funny, but overall an enjoyable experience.
    Dear Catherine, thanks for your review, we are glad you got to enjoy the "rollercoaster of emotions" our museum provides. Best regards from our team.

    Great way to spend an hour
    The museum is a greta idea. It has a collection of items and short stories about the items and the broken relationship they represent. Some are sad, some are funny, a range of stories for a range of relationships (they're not all the breakups of romantic relationships). The ticket price is reasonable considering it is a small musuem.

    Worth a visit if you have time
    Was good to see something very different and the variety of stories and keepsakes were interesting. No two people are the same. No two love stories are either. An easy short visit close to St Mark's and has a pleasant cafe inside. Thanks for the vote if you found this review helpful.

famous 'museum' on the internet, so we went. don't understand the hype at all after you really went to see it yourself. VERY SMALL place and even fewer contents, don't know if it shall be called a museum at all. AVOID!

Impressed with the financial cleverness of whoever thought of this. See, if you want to make money by starting your own museum, you can rent a space and all that, but you probably have to invest a lot of capital by actually acquiring, you know, museum-worthy... stuff.

This museum avoids that problem entirely, by putting up a bunch of donated junk, most of which would be impossible to sell at a yard sale, and posting some stories above it. Admittedly some of the stories are engaging. But in the end, you're just paying -and paying a not insignificant amount - to read some stories and see someone's unwanted junk.

One of the coolest places in Zagreb, original, inspiring and super funny. It's a must while in Zagreb. However, exceptionally rude staff in the museum caffe kind of spoiled the fun. Huge difference between good vibes in the museum and impolite waiter. Advice - do the tour and have your coffee somewhere else. Plenty of nice places around where you'll feel welcomed.

In my opinion totally overrated. The idea is very original, but the stories are too cheesy, and many of the objects don't even have a full story behind them. We went with high expectations and ended highly disappointed.
