About Icelandic Phallological Museum, Reykjavik
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
Funny experience and a great sight if you don't mind the more cruder of interests. Many, many phallic artifacts of animal species and also community donations from people around the globe. A lot of laughs to be had and also some fun facts to take back home (probably not for the grandparents and in-laws though). The museum is currently quite small and I did feel it was a little overpriced at 1500Kr, however, if this means that the collection will grow (no pun intended) then I feel it could be justified. Some very funny gifts in the shop too.
Funny and cute museum. You can see animal specimens in jar, and cultural artifacts. It's a pretty cheap attraction (about $15) and doesn't take too long to see everything. Downtown location that is easy to get to.
Interesting place that you don't see elsewhere. Educational and have good details. Small and short for its entry fee but depends how you look at it.
We decided to go here more for a laugh than anything and it was good fun. I was actually intrigued more than I thought I would be and am sure it could have some scientific interest although it doesn't strike me as if this is the museums main priority. I'd recommend if for mo other reason than you can tick it off your 'to do list'.
This museum is overrated for the entry fee, imho (and I'm the one in our party that really wanted to see it). It costs 1500 ISK to get in, and I would have given it three or maybe four stars had it cost 500 ISK. Anything more is excessive for this museum. that is a little bit full of itself. At times it's hard to know whether it's a phallic museum, or a shrine to itself with articles and clippings about the museum on display. A part of the exhibition is on the level of those toilet humor books with naughty cartoons. Unless you're really interested in how whale penises look, or have lots of time on your hands, you're better off doing something else.
