So, it’s February which means we have to address that big pink and red, sugary sweet elephant in the room. Everywhere you go, you see heart shaped boxes filled with an assortment of chocolate, obnoxiously sappy love cards, and teddy bears as big as you. As if that isn’t bad enough, you are probably being bombarded with questions from your friends, family, coworkers, and everyone else you happen to come into contact with about how you are going to celebrate *cue the dramatic sound effect: dun dun duuunnn* Valentine’s Day. Fret not if you are single and a little bit more on the sour side rather than sweet this year. The Museum of Broken Relationships of Los Angeles has got your back for this Anti-Valentine’s Day!
Why You Should Visit – The Museum of Broken Relationships, located in the heart of Hollywood, is a museum dedicated to just that, broken relationships. Who hasn’t been disappointed in romantic relationships? You walk into the museum as an observer and you leave as an empathizer. You’ll find stories of infidelity, divorce, falling out of love, and failed attempts of making long distance relationships work. Just when you thought that no one could ever possibly understand the emotional obstacle course you had been through, you’ll find a story like yours on display. Rest assure that you are not alone. Deep down, no matter what continents separate us, we all want to love and to be loved.
Be A Part Of The Museum – At first glance, the Museum of Broken Relationships might seem like an odd place to enjoy your time. I mean, who wants to wallow in sadness and heartache in their free time? The museum curate love letters, objects, and photos from people around the world. What I love about this museum is that it’s a safe space where you get to reflect on your emotions and pay respect to romantic past. When you are ready to let go of your baggage from that soul sucking relationship, they’d love to accept the reminders of your past as donations! Don’t worry, if they choose to display your donation, they’ll keep your identity anonymous. You can be as candid as you want!
