  • I had more of it. Little especially. To long woolly high-sounding texts often. Little variation, very busy. I wouldn't recommend it.

  • This is such a fun museum and the concept is so interesting. My friends and I were talking about it for hours after leaving. Definitely worth a visit  more »

  • I visited this place yesterday, having previously visited nearly 4 years ago. I was moved just as much the second time around. It is my favourite museum ever. There's something so powerful about actually seeing an object and reading the story behind the relationship. There are many that will make you laugh, many that will make you cry and many that will get you thinking about how we relate to each other. I can't recommend this place enough.
  • One of my favourite museums in Europe. The collection of objects from broken relationships and stories are equal parts interesting and heartbreaking. Exhibit easily manageable, only taking just over an hour to see it all. Entry fee is super cheap, so definitely a must see.
  • Loved it. Unique exhibits that cover not only romantic relationships but estranged parents, too. Some are intentionally making fun at their spite (like the toaster of vindication) and others had my heart hurting (the mother's suicide note). Letting go is what this museum is about and as I searched my life I realized I may have an entry or two to give, as well. If you have a Zagreb card, entry is free and I didn't have a wait. You can mill around and read freely. It's not necessary to go in order. It took me an hour. I also bought the book.
  • Very beautiful and interesting concept. The museum itself deserves additional patronage and funding. Great location to start off a walk down the hill to lower Zagreb. Excellent interactive capabilities were in use by some young people clearly in need of sharing their stories.
  • Interesting place to visit if you are interested in emotional stories. If your stay in Zagreb is short, then I would prefer to see of the old town!

Where to stay in Zagreb

Lodging in Croatia's capital Zagreb maintains a high standard, with many centrally located hotels offering significant weekend discounts on their finest rooms. Hostels remain the most affordable option for budget-minded travelers visiting for a day or two, providing small but neat rooms only steps away from the city's most popular bars, clubs, and restaurants. For something a bit quieter, look for self-catering apartments and guesthouses in the city's residential neighborhoods, where you can park for free and get a good night's sleep.
