Breakups can be though but an easy way to get over your ex is by donating their old stuff to the Museum of Broken Relationships in Los Angeles.
Each exhibit is centered around an object and a story to explore a failed relationship or broken love. Some are sad, from personal mixtapes to a jarred wedding dress. Some are amusing, like breast implants removed after a breakup and the license plate of a woman who broke up with Texas.
The museum was founded by two artists who dated for four years but broke up in 2003. They opened the museum as a way for people to explore the complexities of love. The original museum in Croatia became a hit in Europe. The Los Angeles exhibit opened in 2016. The museum is a reminder for all broken hearts that people change, grow and recover.
Will you check out the museum next time you are in LA?
