Icelandic Phallological Museum - Reðursafn Íslands



The central location of the Phallological Museum means it's easy to get to and easy to combine with other activities in the downtown area. For instance, get some breakfast at a nice café, check out the museum and then walk up to Hallgrímskirkja church to get the elevator up to the tower(!)

Ok, we're all adults here (unless you're not, in which case where are your parents?!?) - this is the penis museum, there we said it.

The Icelandic Phallological museum is, all awkward snickering aside, a comprehensive collection of phallic specimens from almost all the land and marine mammals in Iceland. The museum's purview is to academically and scientifically study the phallology of Iceland.

The collection counts more than 215 samples from 93 different species of mammal, including all known land mammals, 17 different kinds of whales, various seals and walruses and even a polar bear! In addition to this the museum counts 40 foreign specimens, 21 folklore pieces and a collection of 300 artistic pieces, oddities and practical paraphernalia connected to the particular theme of the museum.  Finally, and famously, the collection contains four different specimens (officially and legally gifted) of homo sapiens.

The museum is situated right in the heart of the city on Laugavegur 116, accross the street from Hlemmur bus station.
