  • But not essential. Step is entertaining, some interesting pieces, but the tour is quickly made and the most interesting surroundings

  • This was a really cute, unusual museum with loads of small displays about people’s relationships gone wrong. It’s pretty small but we still ended up staying there over an hour. I would recommended caution for some visitors as a number of the display descriptions are quite upsetting, even traumatic. It was fairly busy busy when I visited which meant I couldn’t always see the bit I wanted to, but overall I really enjoyed this place. The is also a lovely cafe attached to the museum.
  • Hilarious and unexpected museum, if you love quirky stories and something a bit left of centre this is for you. Some of the stories were genuinely heartbreaking and others had us in stitches (the toaster!). The only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is I would have loved more items in the shop to purchase as a souvenir
  • The exhibits are very nicely laid out with little explanations in English and Croatian. Very well thought out little museum. It’s open til 9pm too, which is good. You probably only need an hour or an hour and a half here.
  • IMO, it doesn't deserve its good reputation. A really dull museum with few and equally indifferent exhibits. Around 6€ for each visitor. Could offer way more funny stories than that. Could have read some similar stories online instead.
  • There is a small cafe outside. Perfect for taking a rest after a long stroll up to the Old city. Here you can contemplate every possible meaning of being single near a Museum of Broken relationships. Where was I? Yes. The cafe is nice and quiet.
