Learning is the only way to turn failure into success.
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 sixty 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 open to the public from June 7 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. There are many restaurants nearby.
During the inaugural month of June we are planning to host evening activities related to failure. How about a failed gourmet tasting menu at a fancy restaurant? Or a tasting of failed brews from regional microbreweries? Fuck-up-night talks? We welcome any further suggestions. The crazier the better…

Museum of Failure offers teams a unique workshop experience. The tour begins with an exploration of the highlights with museum curator Dr. Samuel West. This is followed by an interactive workshop on how your team can improve learning from failure and build the psychological safety necessary for innovation.
