The Museum of Broken Relationships is dedicated to failed relationships. As a matter of fact, it exhibits personal objects, left over from former owners, accompanied by their stories and emotions.
Exhibits hit on a range of emotions and relationships. Reflect on your personal experiences and how they intertwine with the items on display. It makes you think of the value we give to common objects.
It is not about the items you will find. Above all else, it is about the incredible experience and emotions you feel as you walk through the exhibition!
It takes you back to your past emotions as you read the stories written by their owners.
