It might be Valentine’s Day, but some people aren’t so lucky in love.
When dealing with a break-up, some people find it helpful to donate their memorable items to a Museum.
It’s called the ‘Museum of Broken Relationships’ and it actually exists!
The Museum originated in Zagreb, Croatia, and was founded by a couple that broke up after a four year relationship.
Since then, the collection has gone from strength to strength, featuring in numerous Museums across the world.
And now it’s found a temporary new home at the National Centre for Craft and Design in Sleaford.
Numerous items have been donated from all over the world, ranging from teardrops to toys, and boxes to books.
The one thing that all of these objects share in common is that they are a result of relationships that have come to an end.
Jeremy Webster, Head of Exhibitions at the National Centre for Craft and Design, says that the collection is like nothing he has ever seen before:
“It’s the only show I’ve seen where very ordinary objects are shown in this way,” he said. “A lot of museum’s like to relate objects to people nowadays, it’s quite a trend.”
