Breakups are hard. But, they also makes for some pretty great stories. And you'll unearth plenty of those heartbreaking tales when the Museum of Broken Relationships rocks into town.

The internationally acclaimed, Croatian-born exhibition will make its Aussie debut next month, as part of the Melbourne Writers Festival's love-themed 2019 program. It's set to hit the CBD's No Vacancy Gallery from September 1–29, showcasing a thought-provoking collection of real-life relationship relics.

For the museum's Melbourne pop-up, curators (and exes) Olinka Vistica and Drazen Grubisic are pulling together an assortment of local stories and pieces, as well as objects from the exhibition's permanent collections in Zagreb and Los Angeles. Expect to find symbols of heartbreak, nostalgia and ended relationships — and the captivating stories behind them.

And if you've got your own object of long lost love lying around, it can be part of the show, too. Vistica and Grubisic are collecting Melbourne contributions to add a bit of local heartbreak to the pop-up, which might then go on the road and become part of the Museum's permanent collection. To donate your item, fill in a contribution form by August 7.
