  • This is a great museum. Small, easy to navigate. Unusual concept but seems to fit the city vibe. Folks from around the world donate items that remind them of a break up, lost love or...some are super ...  more »
  • Not as maudlin as it sounds. Stories surrounding an object that shows how a broken relationship affected the life following the breakup. Not too much to see, but enough of different types to see.  more »
  • The idea of this museum intrigued me. Some of the stories were funny and some extremely moving, but it is really just a collection of odd items. Ok, but nothing special. The gift shop was good.  more »

  • This place was amazing!!! At first I didn't expect much from it as I thought this tourists spot is overpriced. Then I realized that the exhibits are really meaningful in many ways ! My friend who is still single could not get much from the exhibition yet for myself everything here reminded me about the happy time in my past relationships as well as all the heartbreaking moments . They even prepared booklets that translate the exhibits descriptions from Croatian and English to other languages. How thoughtful was that ! (Although I prefer reading in English as the translations still have some room to improve... ) The only thing I could complain is about the ticket price . Comparing with other tourists spot in Zagreb the ticket price has been set too high and this might stop some people from visiting this museum .
  • Unique and original museum and you will need time for this one in order to read all. And read you will as many of them are outstanding experiences, mostly love couples but also some are the memories of children losing their parents. Museum should be bigger as many exibits received from all over the world are not shown. It is located in old palace. You may visit it all over the world as museum is travelling also.
  • Really cool concept for a museum and you can tell the exhibitions are crafted with care and respect. A good balance of humour and emotion, definitely worth checking out if you're into something a bit different. Really loved the mix of cultures on display, and the video exhibits were a nice touch.
  • I've traveled all throughout Europe and this is one of the coolest museums I've visited. Unique and a great change of pace if you're looking for something different. Zagreb is a great city and this was one of the highlights of our stay.
  • Probably the most unique museum I've ever been to. It'll give you a lot to think about - in a good way. Depending on who you are.
