If you don’t succeed, try, try, try again – at least that’s the message behind Calgary’s up-and-coming Museum of Failure.

From France and Shanghai to Hollywood and Minneapolis – this Sweden-born exhibit displays and celebrates some of mankind’s biggest failures – not in an effort to shame creators, but to encourage others to learn and grow from mankinds mistakes.

This summer, the museum will take Calgary, occupying a space in Southcentre Mall, and believe us when we say, that you won’t want to miss it!

Filled with everything from board games and skin care products, to vehicles and foods, browse and oggle flops from all over the world, from various decades and markets.

‘Innovation and progress require an acceptance of failure,” they explain on their website.

“This museum aims to stimulate productive discussion about failure and inspire us to take meaningful risks,” – a helpful lesson, indeed!
