A new museum opened in Singapore on Wednesday, with the express purpose of healing broken hearts.
The “Museum of Broken Relationships” is a traveling display of donated items related to failed relationships. The founders hope that the museum will provide a safe place to dispose of emotionally-laden objects that are too precious to throw out. So far, the museum has visited Croatia, London, Berlin, and now Singapore. At each stop, the museum picks up new items. In Berlin, an ax used by a woman to break up her ex-girlfriend’s furniture was on display next to a wedding dress, and in Singapore, a woman donated her “tear-soaked teddy bear,” the only remainder of her failed romance with a Chinese man, to the museum’s cause. The museum can also be accessed online. [Reuters]
