Museum of Broken Relationships

I saw the Facebook events page and realised that the Museum of Broken Relationships was ending on 18th. I had free time only on the 17th. I then left a Plurk, saying,

off he goes to visit the Museum of Broken Relationships…

The Museum was tucked away in a not-so-small corner of the Esplanade.  It was in the Jendela, a Visual Arts Space by Cristal Caritas Trust. The items displayed, from what I know, are just a small part of the collection that the main Meseum has. However, I can’t help but to wonder why are there so many items with Singapore connections on display. I was expecting more items from other countries. 

Still, this Mesuem showcases a part of our life which we usually keep quiet about. No matter how much each of us broken hearted says I have let go, there is always a remanent of the relationship remain within us. Be it memories; tokens of affection; or simply a feeling or a thought, all these still tie us together, bond us. Some of the displays are quite emotional (love letters), some are simply comical (a torned caterpillar, representing a long-distance relationship that went bad). Still the significance is still there. 

I am wondering should I send mine? I guess not. I rather keep things within me and private. What is there to share when the feelings and emotions are just to remain within the affected?

  • hey there, would like to ask, is the broken relationship museum still open? and if it is i would like to go there but im not really sure abt the exact location. if you dont mind pls do help me 🙂 good day.

    • Unfortunately, the Museum of Broken Relationships exhibition is closed in Singapore. It was a part of the Singapore Fringe Festival that lasted from 08/01/2009 to 19/01/2009. For more updates on the Museum itself, please go to its website regularly. Or maybe you can catch it next year, if there is one.
