One day you’re running your fingers through your beau’s hair and borrowing his T-shirts, and the next he’s dumping you via 2am text message. Harsh. But before you set that no-good-piece-of-$%*&’s belongings on fire and post a photo of the charred remains on Facebook (you totally were going to do that, weren’t you?), take a breather. Because revenge in the name of art feels much better than smoke inhalation.  


Over in Zagreb, Croatia stands the Museum of Broken Relationships. Yes, this is a real and quite ingenious thing that exists in the world. And you can take the shattered pieces of your heart –and his more intact stuff –and donate it.

The gallery currently boasts 60 remnants of failed relationships. Items range from mundane pink furred handcuffs (because that’s original) to a molecular animal. You can take a peek at some of the fascinating tales of heartbreak here.


And London-dwellers will be pleased to note that from now through the end of August, select donations are displayed at Queen Elizabeth Hall for the “Festival of Love” exhibit.


So, if your ex tore your beating heart out and stomped on it, know that you are not alone. And if you’re happily in love, rejoice in the fact that breakups suck a great deal less when they’re not your own.
