Phallological Museum | Iceland

Day 1 In Iceland

The Icelandic Phallological Museum

After strolling a bit more through the streets of Reykjavik, I found what I was looking for. The Icelandic Phallological Museum: home to over 280 real penises from various species, including human! I am a big fan of all things bizarre and disturbing, and this was one of the more bizarre and disturbing museums I’ve visited. And I loved every minute of it. They claim to have at least one penis from every mammal native to Iceland, and they also have some exotic specimen that have been donated, such as giraffe and zebra.

Penises. Need I say more?

The penis of a sperm whale is proudly displayed in the center of the museum, and it is as big as me. Talk about awkward.

Human Testicle. The penis itself is in a nearby jar, but these specimen weren't preserved properly, so they became shriveled up and discolored. They are currently looking to acquire a "bigger and better" specimen.

They say this jar contains the penis of an elf (it is believed, in Icelandic Folklore, that elves are invisible)
