Mybe you can donate your p*e*n*i*s too Feb 03, 2017
The Icelandic Phallological Museum is the only one in the world that is dedicated to the male organ. There are 280 members and parts of members taken from over 90 species including elves and trolls (if you believe in them) The museum opened up in 1997 by Sigurður Hjartarsonand and you will find the building very near Hlemmur Bus Station. Sigurdur first became interested in the subject when he was given a whip that was made out of a bull's member, then he started collecting them which included a 76 cm one from a whale and a tiny one from a hamster. In July 2011 the museum got hold of its first human p*e*n*i*s but unfortunately it was not preserved properly and turned in to a grey shrivelled mass in a jar of formalin, but do not worry as the museum has legal documents from several would be donors, so get your name down quick if you wish that your member will be displayed for all to see, and let us hope that it does not shrivel away to an unrecognisable lump.

NOTE

There is a Canadian documentary called THE FINAL MEMBER which documents the museum's search for a male exhibit.

Entrance fee is 1250 ISK

Opening hours 11.00 -18.00

the museum is on bus routes 1,3,4,5,6,11,12,13,14

For the penis fan Jun 23, 2009
The Icelandic Phallological Museum is dedicated to the humble penis. Over the years the curator has collected penises from every mammal on Iceland, except for humans. He has 55 whale penises from 17 species, a polar bear penis, 36 seal and walrus penises from 7 species, 115 land mammal penises from 20 different species, two fish penises, giving a total of 209 penis specimens from 46 species. The scariest part were the letters from four future donors who wrote legally binding contracts to donate their penises to the museum when they died. If anything, these donors seem to have more of a penis fetish than the curator, one of the donors provided a letter to the museum (with accompanying photos) of how fond he was of his penis – he had already made over 100 latex casts of his penis to ensure it will be preserved for posterity. A very tasteful display was that of silver casts of the penises of the Icelandic National Handball Team, who won Olympic Silver in 2008.
