Curator, Samuel West has opened a Museum of Failure in Helsingborg Sweden, which is a collection of innovation failures.
The collection consists of over seventy failed products and services from around the world.
West says that modern society glorifies success and somehow demonises failure which he believes is a greater opportunity to learn and should be appreciated.
Every item in the museum provides unique insight into the risky business of innovation.
