The Museum of Failure will open again in April at Dunkers Kulturhus. A fantastic location right on the waterfront in Helsingborg.
We are happy and surprised that so many visitors from all over the globe have visited us during the short few months this summer. We did not anticipate the huge interest in our museum and the extraordinary number of ticket sales when we initially scheduled the duration of the exhibit in Helsingborg.
The Museum of Failure plans on going on a world tour. Failure might be coming to a city near you!
Museum of Failure is a collection of interesting innovation failures. The majority of all innovation projects fail and the museum showcases these failures to provide visitors a fascinating learning experience.
The collection consists of over seventy failed products and services from around the world. Every item provides unique insight into the risky business of innovation.
Some examples of the items on display:
• Apple Newton
• Bic for Her
• Google Glass
• Nokia N-gage
• Orbitoclast Lobotomy (medical instrument)
• Harley-Davidson Perfume
• Kodak Digital Camera
• Sony Betamax
• Lego Fiber Optics
The exhibition is located in downtown Helsingborg, Sweden. It is only a short walk from the train station and the ferries from Denmark. The exhibition is presented in both Swedish and English, auch auf deutsch. There are many restaurants nearby. Parking is however a problem, and we recommend trying to find parking around the city park – Google Maps
We also host evening activities related to failure. How about a failed gourmet tasting menu at a fancy restaurant? A tasting of failed brews from regional microbreweries? Or a world-renowned classic pianist giving a concert of failed music? Fuck-up-night talks? We welcome any further suggestions. The crazier the better…
