The Museum Of Broken Relationships Comes To London

The award winning Museum of Broken Relationships is coming to London, bringing with it a selection of objects that mark the breakup of relationships.

The objects range from the everyday (underwear, teddy bears) to the unexpected (pianos, garden gnomes, brain scans, Proust...).

To mark the trip to London, the Museum will also be incorporating local objects and breakup stories into the exhibition, with some being exhibited in shop windows around the Seven Dials area and the rest taking up residence in the Tristan Bates Theatre.

Part therapy, part museum, part sociological record and wholly fascinating, you'll find stories to make you giggle and sniffle.
