A temporary museum has popped up in Invercargill just in time for Valentines Day. Open only until Sunday, the collection entitled What is love? Baby don’t hurt me, showcases love(ish) stories from our community.

Inspired by the Museum of Broken Relationships, the collection showcases the raw, emotional pain of heartbreak, as well as the irreverence of hindsight.

The pop-up museum was conceived by Louise Evans, who insists that “while the idea is not original, the stories are. There’s a tooth and a lux in the collection. They’re very much Southland stories.”

The museum invites the community to explore the way we love and lose, and the objects that hold these memories. Participants can share their own intimate stories on blank Valentines Day cards, and are encouraged to bring in their own artifacts to Cahoots.

This is just one of many temporary museums that have popped up in Invercargill since the closure of the Southland Museum and Art Gallery.
