Museum of Broken Relationships

World Famous Museum in Zagreb – Museum of Broken Relationships!

Have you ever been in the Museum of Broken Relationships? If not, you can find it while wandering near funicular on Zagreb Upper town. This is a museum about the experience and aftermath of breaking up with someone you once loved or still love, a public space consecrated to a universal experience of sadness and loss. The Museum of Broken Relationships premise is very simple. Disappointed lovers donate an object that held meaning for them in a relationship. They provide basic details about location and how long their relationship lasted, and write a little story to explain what happened.

To date this exhibition has been shown in numerous cities, including Berlin, Belgrade, Cape Town, London, Istanbul, Singapore, Bloomington, St. Louis, and Houston. Around 800 objects have been donated to the Museum of Broken Relationships so far by members of the public. The installation in Zagreb is the museum’s permanent home and has become a significant attraction, which is featuring on the city’s street signs alongside other tourist destinations.

The space is just right for the subject. The gently vaulted rooms are small and intimate, and the illuminated shelves give the incongruous collection of objects both consistency and presence.

Whatever the motivation for donating personal belongings is — a sheer exhibitionism, therapeutic relief or simple curiosity — people embraced the idea of exhibiting their legacies as a sort of a ritual and a solemn ceremony.

In the Museum you can also buy souvenirs, T-shirts, books and postcards and the Museum cafe will give you a chance to pull yourself together after an emotional whirlwind caused by the exhibition, in a quiet and pleasant atmosphere accompanied by the sounds of good music.
