When someone mentions the word, “Museum”, what is the first thing which comes to mind? At first, you may think of a massive building aligned with historical artifacts or scientific exhibitions which captivate your mind and enrich your intellects. Or perhaps your initial thoughts lead you down memory lane to those interactive museums you enjoyed visiting on school field trips. How ever you tend to define a museum, these attractions are usually crafted to highlight “significance” “grandeur” and “excellence”.

But what about a museum which strips all that away and only focuses on failures? That is exactly what Dr. Samuel West of Helsingborg, Sweden has accomplished with his revolutionary Museum of Failure. Since the permanent display opened on June 7, 2017, the museum has come to house over 70 failed products and services from around the world. The concept behind this one-of-a-kind museum was sparked upon Dr. West’s visit to The Museum of Broken Relationships. Upon realizing such out-of-the-box exhibitions existed, Dr. West decided to open his own unique museum, highlighting the product failures that name brand companies have attempted to keep under lock and key.
