    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 »

    This museum is a very special space in the world, dedicated to love and letting go. It is some parts wistful, most parts hopeful - I found myself cheering on the protagonists of the lives left behind with these once loved exhibits. Come here to feel that you are not alone. A must visit when in Zagreb.

    Quirky museum. Worth a visit. Various physical mementos from failed relationships with corresponding stories. As it sounds, it's very sad. And completely hilarious. Sometimes at the same time. It's not high tech. Young kids will be bored to tears. But if you like quirky or the weather is bad or you need to kill an hour before something else, definitely a good stop. Enjoyed it.

    Different, but not sure all the hype is justified. Stories were not amazingly interesting and gets crowded. But not a bad way to spend 45 minutes and get out of the heat.

    Interesting little museum. Not too big, but enough. Could have been soppy and heavy handed, but there was a nice balance between sentiment and humour to the exhibit.

    The only museum where I read every single placard/label. The museum is fairly small, but fairly content rich. Allot about 1.5 - 2 hours for the visit and read through all of the items. The experience is very unique and emotional so go with some tissues if you're the type to cry. Take your significant other to test your relationship as well.

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.
