  • Small enough Museum, but there are a lot of reading to appreciate the content, so we can stay between 1 and 2 hours. The Museum includes objects symbols of a breakup, and tells their story.

  • Definitely worth the visit - save yourself 2 hours to visit the museum and read all its donations. It’s best if you go during the morning - in the afternoon it’s too crowded  more »
  • Very interesting concept, lots of reading to do, some sad, some touching stories, humorous giftshop, very good cafe - definitely worth a visit.  more »

  • 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.
  • A unique museum based on a creative and ingenious idea. The objects in the exhibition are not valuable or special themselves but once you read the attached stories they become interesting. Visiting the museum gives you many hints for reflection and self thinking.
  • Beautiful concept with some really touching stories from people around the world. The tickets are cheap (40 HKR) per person. Definitely worth it.
  • 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.
  • 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.

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.
