Icelandic Phallological Museum - Review
This is literally one-of-its-kinds Museum, with a display of phallic specimen of various mammals found in Iceland. The museum is a small room with the phallic specimen displayed in jars; it houses more than 283 such specimens of mammal’s like Whale, Polar Bear, Seals, Walrus and Humans. Apart from them it also houses 23 specimens of folklore!
The museum came into being when the founder-Sigurdur Hjartarson started collecting phallic parts of various mammals, now run by his son Hjortur Gísli Sigurasson–he has taken the museum to a great level altogether. The idea of entering a Phallological museum itself is peculiar and the walk through the room just keeps adding to it! Phallology has recently gained some concern in the field of history, literature, sciences and the Icelandic Phallological Museum is playing a huge part in spreading awareness.
Do not forget to visit the store on site for some really quirky merchandise!

Icelandic Phallological Museum, Reykjavik Reviews
I'm not sure exactly what I expected but I was left somewhat wanting. Its interesting for sure but many of the specimens are in jars of perservative rendering them difficult to properly appreciate. Also, the only human specimens are "promises' to donate their organs... That being said, if you are traveling to Iceland it is still probably worth it to simply say you've been.
I thought this was a gimmick museum, but it turned out to be quite educational and entertaining! The audio tour is worthwhile to hear the curator speak about the items in context.
Packed with weird and interesting items, one hell of a collection. There is nothing else like this, must see stuff. nice little gift shop and a good sense of humour too the whole subject. If you're in the area it takes less than an hour to get around the whole things and it's honestly a fun little visit
It's cool to go since it's a unique collection in the world, but the museum itself was pretty small and lackluster considering the 1500 isk entry cost. Worth saying you've been but it only took 30 minutes to see and read everything.
My taxi driver shafted me initially, but I rose to the occasion and slipped in through the back door. I was rudely told to enter through the front, so I did reluctantly. After a few minutes, I came into the museum and was surrounded on all sides by stimuli. After a few exhausting minutes, I was ready to go, so I did. Seriously, it's a museum full of dicks. I thought it was fun, but my kids were a little weirded out with seeing such exhibits with their parents and grandparents 🤷🏻♂️
