Don’t call it a penis museum. Yes, it contains a very large phallological collection and the museum doesn’t take itself too serious – but the museum has a scientific background and is not like this special museum at Amsterdam visited by giggling teens. The museum presents 284 phalluses and aims to have one from every mammal living on Iceland. They’re struggling a bit with conserving a human one in good shape, but they’ll probably solve this issue.

You can find the Icelandic Phallological Museum (strangely named Hið Íslenzka Reðasafn) in the basement of a building close to the city center of Reykjavík and the Harpa concert hall. The founder Sigurður Hjartarson was a teacher and already started his collection in his youth. It was officially opened in 1997 and is now operated by his son. Here you can see phalluses of all sizes: from hamsters and guinea pigs to whales (pretty impressive). Don’t try to post pictures on social media, they might ban you. 😉
