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 - Write a Review
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'.
A cool little museum with an undeniably unique gallery. Well worth the entry fee. Unlike any museum I have ever visited. Completely educational. Tastefully done!
Interesting to see but you won't be in there for very long (an hour or less for most I guess). It is pretty educational and there are a few cultural jokes here and there (elf phallus). Fun for what it is.
Funny, but too repeating (lot of whales phallus...) that makes the experience a bit boring. More clear explanation would be welcome ! Otherwise, I found the visit very humoristic, mostly the legendary creature's penis...
This is a really whacky place but very unique and worth a quick stop. It’s on the pricey side but what isn’t here.
