Museum of Broken Relationships

Special Exhibition – Submissions Phase

Have you ever had your heart broken? Do you own an object that won’t let you forget? Give it to us, and join a global exhibition of loss and healing.

The Otago Museum is co-organising the collection of objects for the upcoming Museum of Broken Relationships exhibition in Dunedin, New Zealand.

We’re seeking your objects of memory and loss; anything that reminds you of a cessation of a relationship, whether it be a lover, a friend, family, or anyone else who has left a hole in your heart.

The selected objects will be on display at Otago Museum from 21 December 2019 to 15 March 2020.

All donations become part of the Museum of Broken Relationships’ collection and may be exhibited in the permanent display in Zagreb or elsewhere in the world.

Become a part of global emotional history!

After submitting, you will receive a confirmation email with a printable version of the form, and further instructions for delivery. Donations will not be accepted without an accompanying complete form.

Donations can be made from Monday 16 September until Friday 1 November 2019 at

Donations are non-returnable, and, if ever selected for display, will be exhibited anonymously.
