  • Interesting exposition ! Made me smile on many occasions. But be prepare to do a lot of reading. My eyes were sore from the small writting. Maybe it worth taking the audioguide for a more immersive an...  more »
  • It is a one of a kind Museum, the truth is that it is surprising to see exposure since there are a lot of objects that symbolize a form of loss end a relationship, I would take a couple of hours to see some quite specific ways to terminate a relationship. I recommend it

  • Different but good. Some exhibits have a chuckle. But you begegent but mostly human depths. After the visit, I was a little sad. In any case, it stimulates thought. A visit is worthwhile in any case. Look in the gift shop... ;-)

  • 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.
