  • It is indeed a unique museum. It is like reading a non-fiction book. You do need a lot of time & concentration to read all the stories. After the second room we read enough stories ; ) 
  • It is original, and if you're over with a story about broken hearts, you moved. It is not that it is hit low, but on the contrary, serves for release or be reborn. Can you give objects with history, I took one and with a letter and a history, so maybe someday another to see it. Everything is in English, a penalty for those who do not handle well are lost the most interesting.

  • Not sure what I expected but this museum was great fun! Lots of items with stories of what they meant within a broken relationship! A good way to spend an hour!

  • Most of the stories make you think on them. Some are just funny and others make you sad or even angry. It's nice to get some idea of what other people have to struggle with and that you're not the only one feeling down when things seem dark. You get a better perspective on your own past, current and even future romantic experiences. A must see :)
  • Really enjoyable museum! It's like reading a charming and offbeat book with objects that can be amusingly simple to extremely powerful (such as a mother's suicide note). We found that the last room, which has equally interesting stories, added that bit too much content that made us feel a bit tired with the exhibit. We thought it would have been better if it were that little bit smaller as we were satisfied before that point.
  • Very nice unusual museum with interesting pieces of lives from around the world ranging from summer love ending to real love dramas.. A bit unsettling.. And depressing though...
  • Really good museum base in a really good idea. Objects from broken relationship. Really realley good.
  • Maybe it is the best museum in Zagreb! Practically it is a collection of items and relative descriptions from all over the world that are connected with love relations which broke up. The museum really deserves a visit. However, consider that Zagreb Card is not ammitted for discounts, differently from what it is advised by the Zagreb official website.
