Museum Of Broken Relationships


More than just a museum, the Museum of Broken Relationships in Zagreb, Croatia, is a sanctuary for the heartbroken. Founded in 2010 by Olinka Vistica and Drazen Grubisic, the museum features exhibits that include a wide variety of items such as love letters, photographs, and personal memorabilia donated by people from all over the world. Each exhibit tells a different story of love, loss, and heartbreak, and visitors can explore the memories and emotions associated with them.


Each object on display is a tangible representation of someone’s past relationship and the emotions associated with it. Visitors can’t help but feel a sense of intimacy as they read love letters or look at photographs. As you walk through the exhibits, you’re transported into a world of heartbreak and longing, but also of hope and healing.


For me, visiting the Museum of Broken Relationships is like taking a long walk by the sea. I can hear the waves and I mean that. I feel deeply at home. In my opinion, the feelings that the Museum of Broken Relationships evokes are important. The museum reminds us of the emotions we try to avoid with a calm touch, like the wave that hits our feet when we walk by the sea. It’s a place where I can go to escape the noise and chaos of everyday life and just be with my thoughts. It’s a place where I can reflect on my own experiences and emotions and see how they relate to the stories on display.


The museum also features a variety of artworks, including sculptures, paintings, and installations that explore the theme of broken relationships in different ways. These artworks are often as personal and emotional as the exhibits and add a further layer of depth to the overall theme of the museum. From abstract representations of heartbreak to humorous takes on failed relationships, the artworks on display will leave you with a wide range of emotions .


One of the most unique and special aspects of the museum is the explanatory cards, where you can read the stories and feelings of the donors behind the exhibits, a powerful reminder that everyone goes through heartbreak and that it is possible to come out on the other side.


The founders of the Museum of Broken Relationships, Olinka Vistica and Drazen Grubisic said they wanted to create a space where people could share their stories and find comfort in knowing they were not alone in their experiences. They also wanted to   the traditional idea of a museum, which is often seen as a place to admire art or artifacts, not to share personal experiences.


Museum staff also play an important role in the visitor’s experience. Anja and Mia, who I met and who work at the museum, are a testament to this. Their kindness and peacefulness helped to create a welcoming and comfortable atmosphere, making it even easier to connect with the exhibits and the emotions they evoke. They were more than willing to help me with anything and that made me feel comfortable. Their willingness to talk about the museum and the feelings it evoked added a personal touch to the experience and made it even more meaningful.


I find myself wanting to return to the museum every week to be reminded of the healing power of sharing and understanding one’s feelings. I like to find a ‘safe place’ to feel my emotions and focus on my feelings and thoughts. This museum is my safe place to be myself. It’s a sanctuary for the brokenhearted, where the raw and personal nature of the exhibits, along with the artwork and the personal touch of the staff, all work together to create a unique and special experience.
