Learning is the only way to turn failure into success.

About

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 Museum

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…
