The Museum of Broken Relationships

Probably the most interesting of the quirky museums that I've seen on my travels, (the Paprika Museum in Hungary and the Opium Museum in Thailand make the list) The Museum of Broken Relationships in Zagreb, Croatia is a fascinating collection of hysterical and heart wrenching memorabilia from relationships from around the world. Romantic relationships, of course, are well represented, as are relationships between children and absent fathers, deceased mothers, and those destroyed by abuse and drugs.
Some of my personal favorite highlights from the museum are:
