Love is tricky, and break ups are hard.
Whether or not you’re in a relationship now, you likely know how it feels to have your heart broken. You mope around, probably cry into your cereal, and stalk your ex on Facebook. We’ve all done it, there’s no judgments here.
But some everlasting relics of a relationship that remain after you start to feel better are the things left behind: the jewelry he gave you, the ratty old sweatshirt she left behind, the cards and the record and books and everything else with sentiment attached.
Starting this week, The Museum of Broken Relationships is setting up shop in San Francisco to explore those things. They’ve collected items donated from all over the world, and are displaying them in a gallery as an ultimate reminder of love lost.
“It is a grand effort to honor the emotional heritage of humankind, offering the possibility to use the positive forces of creation and memory (instead of destruction and oblivion) in overcoming your broken heart,” the website reads.
Feel like walking down memory lane? Head to Root Division at 1059 Market St. in San Francisco now through the end of the month.
