  • 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 is a nice, cozy and a bit unexpected place. So warm, so sweet and so surprising. Made me spend like an hour and before I thought 10 minutes might be enough. A lot of really cool gadgets to buy, be careful! Bar is OK, don't expect too much though...
  • Interesting place to be, especially if u like stories. Quite a lot of exhibited items.with details stories. I spent 1.5hours there to read all stories.stories about lovers in war time especially interest me.They accept cards. Student discount available (30kn). Good to visit on a rainy chilly day
  • The museum is very interesting and unique, the people who work there are also amazing and helpful. Needless to say they speak perfect English. I broke up with my 4 years of girlfriend just after we went here. It's just a coincidence tho, our relationship wasn't going well either way lol. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ 10/10 would go again.
  • A surprisingly interesting museum. Loads of funny or touching stories relating to the end of people's relationships. A recommended visit.
  • A fascinating look at objects and stories from all over the world detailing the end of a relationship. Time needs to be taken to read the stories that go with each object which are filled with a mixture of humour, grief, astonishment and love. It is a great place to spend and hour or two and once finished looking at the exhibits the is a nice little cafe on site to enable reflection.
