At the Museum of Broken Relationships, the personal is public

At the Museum of Broken Relationships, the personal is public | Museology | Scoop.it

The Museum of Broken Relationships, which opened last week, is a travelling exhibit of seemingly mundane objects that tell the astonishingly poignant, funny and bitter stories of past loves lost.

It's a museum of buildings, so to speak.
