Museum of Broken Relationships - Most important information

The Museum of Broken Relationships was founded in 2011 and was created as an idea of ​​a former couple. It is dedicated to all failed love relationships, while all the exhibits and objects of former lovers are displayed in it, along with short descriptions. Due to its exceptional authenticity and originality, the Museum of Broken Relationships is the most visited Zagreb among tourists.

History of the Museum of Broken Relationships
The idea for something this unusual was born in 2003. Namely, film producer Olinka Vištica and academic painter Dražen Grubišić were in a love relationship for four years until 2003. The most considerable doubt then was what to do with everything they had left after the breakup. Three years after that idea, the two contact their friends and invite everyone to donate things and items they have from failed relationships. This idea was realized and shown for the first time in 2006, after which the collection of objects went on an extensive world tour.

Serbia, Argentina, Germany, the Philippines, and Singapore are just some countries that had the opportunity to see this innovative and original idea. All visitors had the chance to donate various items, which made the collection richer voluntarily. Although they did not enjoy much interest from the Ministry of Culture in Croatia, the original organizers of this museum rented a private space in the city with their funds in 2010. They thus became the first private museum in Zagreb.

Authentic objects that bear witness to a love shipwreck: Over time, the Museum of Failed Relationships has become a veritable treasure trove of emotional values and memories of past relationships. Each item has a short description, and often the authors are anonymous. The Museum today has over 4,000 authentic objects thanks to the original story.
  • Exceptional attendance and international recognition: The authenticity of this project is confirmed by the fact that thousands of people visited the Museum on its world tour, and today it is the most visited Museum in Zagreb.
