In 2016, John B. Quinn founded the Los Angeles branch of the museum in the heart of Hollywood, a city of dreams. There is a saying of this museum, “many realized and many not which often leave broken relationships in their wake”.
Museum of Broken Relationships is a physical and virtual public space created with the sole purpose of treasuring and sharing the heartbreaking stories and symbolic possessions. It is a museum about everyone we love and lose.
At its core, the Museum is an ever-growing collection of items, each a memento of a relationship past, accompanied by a personal, yet anonymous story of its contributor. The Museum offers the chance to overcome an emotional collapse through creativity- by contributing to its universal collection.
A broken heart is one of those experiences that all of us as human can share, yet you can only experience alone. Next time if someone you love hurts you cry a river, remember to build a bridge, and get over it.
