10 of the strangest things you’ll find in Iceland’s penis museum

Yes you read that correct, there is a penis museum in Iceland, and yes it is home to a collection of more than two hundred penises and penile parts. Officially known as The Icelandic Phallological Museum, this unusual attraction contains a total of 282 specimens from 93 different species of animals.

Expect to find the likes of whale, seal, walrus and even polar bear penile parts as well as a collection of about 350 penis-esq artistic oddments and practical penis utensils.

Located on the outskirts of Reykjavik in Iceland, the museum has been around since 1997, open every day from 10-6pm, giving you plenty of time to fulfil all your animal penis viewing desires. Becoming a top attraction in Iceland, ‘The Icelandic Phallological Museum’ brings in over 12,000 visitors a year, and roughly 120,000 suppressed giggles, snorts, and LOLs.

THIS is why…

It’s home to 56 penises from 17 different types of whales.

Of course no penis museum is complete without the Icelandic National Handball team’s penises, created following their silver medal victory at the Beijing Olympics in 2008.
