This is just rad! What a concept! Originally a travelling exhibit, this museum is a like a morbid tribute to romance, sort of like what zombies are to living humans. Two Zagreb residents who’d been in love asked their friends (as a joke at first) to contribute memorabilia from their broken relationships. The idea snowballed into a successful world tour, culminating in Zagreb’s first private museum, once enough donations had been acquired from the world over! It’s been lauded as one of the most daring private museum projects ever. It’s bittersweet, and an unexpected emotional rollercoaster. The exhibits are arranged along three distinct themes:
- Material Remains: paraphernalia like letters and gifts left over from relationships.
- Virtual Web: registered visitors can upload content from their own failed relationships
- Confessional: a confidential storage for private memories.
- The Cafe here is beyond awesome lots of comforting, local flavors like Croatian mulled wine, pepper cookies and a great selection of tea.
- For students ,above 65years ahe people : 20 HRK
- Cafe at the Museum

A very interesting, quirky place to visit in Zagreb. Stories of lost loves & broken promises,some were sad, others difficult and some had worked out for the best. All exhibits had been donated by the story tellers. They included a wedding dress, a parachute & some odd & quirky items. The items & stories were donated by people from all over the world. Worth a visit.
Enjoyed it and the concept is amazing. Probably it’s too much reading and the owners should consider including more audiovisual material as from one point on it gets too tiring to read read read. Also would suggest a rating system so visitors can vote for the stories so the museum has only good ones.
Beautifully set out. Very nice staff. Came away feeling a little sad, but also touched by the power of love. A unique and interesting concept.
An amazing museum, not just filled with items from romantic relationships but touching things like parents who lose a child too soon. I spent a couple of hours here trying to read every single description and examine every item it was a fantastic experience that I would highly recommend.
I asked my hostel staff what the best Museum was and they recommended this one. It had items which were mementos of broken relationships. Funny, sad and interesting descriptions were attached to almost all of them. Some had barely any description and some relationships were for two weeks :/ All in all quite unique but if this is the best museum in the city then I’m not sure about the others. I did meet people who said this was so sad that they cried so maybe I’m just dead inside :)
