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

  • Honestly this was my favourite museum we visited while in Reykjavik! I thought it was just going to be a bit of a time killer and give me some funny pictures to send to my friends but it was that and much more! The museum is one large room with a couple of smaller alcoves leading off from it, and we probably spent a good hour here if not longer, but didnt read the detail on every exhibit. My favourite bit was the folklore area, where you got to see troll, merman and ghost appendages!!! So much fun, well worth the entry fee, and something I would put on must see list for others visiting the city.

  • Awesome time! Hilarious exhibits and a must stop in Reykjavik! Check out all of the whale phalli, and also all the curiosities. The best part isn't looking at the exhibits, but more reading the accompanying material and learning more about the items on display. If you're into something that's a little different, off the beaten path, and will make for great souvenirs and stories, this is the place to go!!

  • A perfect afternoon in Iceland. After deciding we did not want to take in the sights of the beautiful, out of this world landscapes of Iceland's southern coast-We found ourselves at this cabinet of curiosity, a private collection of the most diverse penises on the planet. Pretty expensive ticket for "lab" of preserved wieners-wish there was an audio guide. I feel the knowledge of the self guided tour was lost in the wordy binder. Excellent photo opportunities inside.

  • If you want stories to tell for years to come, this is the museum for you. There are some interesting specimens ranging from gigantic to microscopic. They also have some great souvenirs to bring home (I picked up a couple of phallic bottle openers to bring back home). It's much smaller than I expected, but overall it was a fun and unique experience.

  • This is a hard place to review. I'm not sure I'm up to the task. It has a unique quality I can't quite put my finger on. I would recommend going in the summer, as the collection is a lot smaller in cold weather.
