Like any eureka and good stories, the concept of the Museum of Hangovers in Zagreb, Croatia was made over a good drink of beer with friends.
Rino Dubovic shared in an interview that he was talking to his friends about their hangover stories. He then thought these are precious stories needed to be preserved and exposed.
Six months later, he built The Museum of Hangovers. It is next to the bar where they were taking their booze on the night he thought of the idea.
Exhibits include displays of objects people found inexplicably the morning after a boozy night. It also has a room where visitors can test their reflexes after putting on “beer goggles.
It also houses an interactive section where visitors can share their own best and worst hangover experiences. The gift shop sells a “drunkopoly” board game and bar activities, like darts.
Dubokovic said the museum aims to present physical representation of long conversations with loved ones and strangers while having a drink.
Opened last year, he said the museum is still a “test concept.” He hopes to get additional funding to make it as a permanent establishment.
This is not the first time the country’s capital welcomed a museum that is based on pop culture experiences.
In 2010, the Museum of Broken Relationships was founded wherein visitors donate objects relating to breakups.
