For most people, their worst hangover is an experience they’d rather forget.
But one museum wants to hear all about you your hangover woes – and the antics on a night out that got you there.
The Museum of Hangovers in Zagreb, Croatia, has opened its doors in a bid to immortalise the world of hangovers and everything they entail.
Displays feature tales of people’s nights out and hangovers, as well as objects people inexplicably found after nights out, while there are some interactive elements including a ‘drunk goggles’ challenge where you don the glasses before attempting to walk in a straight line, as well as a ‘Drinkopoly’ themed board game.
There’s even a ‘Hangover Room’ which shares plenty of tell-tale signs of a hangover-in-the-making.
The museum opened in December 2019, and it’s still collecting stories of people’s nights out – you can submit yours on their website and if it makes the cut, they will print it and add it to the collection.
Entrepreneur Rino came up with the idea after an evening with friends in which they ended up swapping tales of their nights out.
It inspired him to create “a place or some sort of collection where all these objects from drunk stories” could be displayed.
Although the museum takes a tongue-in-cheek approach to people’s tales of boozy nights out, the aim isn’t to encourage drinking, but rather to share the stories that would be talked about amongst friends.
In fact, Rino wants to use the venture to eventually educate people about the darker side of alcohol – and why you should drink responsibly.
He told CNN : “In the future, we want to make people aware of the bad things related to alcohol.”
Tickets to the museum are €4, or €3.50 for students. You can find out more on the Museum of Hangovers website .
If you’re heading to Zagreb, it’s not the only quirky museum that’s worth being on your radar.
The city is also home to the Museum of Broken Relationships, which explores tales of broken hearts – a strong contender for the world’s weirdest museums .
Zagreb also offers beautiful architecture and plenty of historic spots – there’s a reason why it’s tipped as one of the best things to see and do in Croatia .
Always drink responsibly. You can find out more about alcohol misuse on the DrinkAware website .
