The Strangest Museums in Europe: From a Museum of Broken Relationships to a Museum of Toilets

Are you traveling through Europe anytime soon? Then you’re probably also looking into all of the different museums that you can visit. Luckily, there are plenty of options. Even if you’re someone who enjoys slightly weird and quirky things. Let me rephrase that — especially if you’re someone who enjoys weird and quirky things. Here are just some of the strangest museums in Europe that you shouldn’t miss out on.

Museum of Broken Relationships – Zagreb, Croatia

One of the most unique museums in Europe is the Museum of Broken Relationships in Zagreb. The museum is devoted to broken relationships and features mementos that previously held sentimental value for lovers but now act as poetic reminders of heartache. The exhibits, which range from wedding dresses to love letters, were all donated by people from all around the world. Each item is accompanied by a touching personal tale that will help you feel connected to people you haven’t even met.

The Toilet Museum – Prague, Czech Republic

The Toilet Museum in Prague is the place to go if you’ve ever been curious about the history of the toilet. The museum exhibits everything from contemporary bidets to ancient Roman latrines. It even has a functional toilet that was formerly used by the Austrian-Hungarian emperor. Additionally, there are interactive exhibitions at the museum, as well as a gift store where you can pick up various toilet-themed trinkets. So if you enjoy weird history and fun souvenirs, this is the place to go.

The Museum of Witchcraft and Magic – Cornwall, England


The Museum of Witchcraft and Magic in Cornwall should not be missed by anyone with a fascination for the shadowier aspects of history. Through a range of displays, including objects used in spells and rituals, as well as artwork and historical documents pertaining to witchcraft, the museum presents the history of witchcraft and magic. It is also built in a historic structure that adds to the gloomy atmosphere and spooky vibe.

The Torture Museum – Amsterdam, Netherlands

A horrifying look into the past of punishment and torture is provided at the Torture Museum in Amsterdam. An array of torture devices, such as a guillotine, a stretching rack, and a spiked chair are just some of the things that you’ll be able to see. But besides taking cool and quirky pictures, you’ll also be able to learn a lot about history. And let me tell you — you’ll never feel happier to have been born in the modern world.


The Museum of Vampires and Legendary Creatures – Paris, France

Fans of the paranormal should not miss a trip to Paris’s Museum of Vampires and Legendary Creatures. Vampire hunting gear, old vampire novels, and even a real human skull that is rumored to have belonged to a vampire are all on display in the museum along with other fabled monsters. The museum, which is in the center of Paris, provides English- and French-language guided tours.

The Museum of Medieval Torture Instruments – Riga, Latvia

A fascinating peek into the bleak past of the Middle Ages may be found at the Museum of Medieval Torture Instruments in Riga. The thumbscrew, rack, and iron maiden are just a few of the torture devices on display at the museum. You will also have the chance to learn more about the history of torture. But also the many techniques applied throughout history. Not only how they worked, but why they were used and who came up with them.
