What people are saying about Zagreb

Museum was not very large but there was a lot of “exhibits” - essentially it’s a collection of momentous from past relationships that are no more (romantic, parental, platonic, etc) and the story behind each momentous so it is a good amount of reading. They also have a cozy cafe bar where you can have a coffee and/or cocktail. They happened to have live music last night when I went.

It was an overwhelming experience. Just by reading the signs and then watching the items you could feel and understand the feelings the person was experiencing. If you are hopelessly romantic I highly recommend it. If you are not but you want to see and feel love and heartbreak in a different and special way, I still highly recommend it.

Very emotional visit, i got to learn about other peoples’ stories and heartbreaks and remember my own while sharing sweet words on the book of memories. It s a different kind of museum to try.

My experience with Get Your Guide is as fabulous. I got my skip the line ticket early and was reminded that my activity was coming up. It was very well done!

The museum is very interesting and has a lot of objects, vehicles etc. from different ages.
