Reykjavik, Iceland: The Icelandic Phallological Museum

It's going to be difficult to write this, because we now visit the Icelandic Phallological Museum, shortened to the Icelandic Penis Museum.

This museum started because of the interest of Sigurður Hjartarson, who was given a bull whip made out of a cattle's penis. This led to collection of specimens from 93 different types of animals. 

The museum has received all sorts of attention over the years since its opening about 20 years ago. It is located in the main shopping district.

Sadly, when I went by it, the museum was scheduled to close in only 10 minutes. Therefore, it wasn't worthwhile to pay $10 to visit. But you could see the gift shop from the sidewalk. Let's say there are several unique items for sale, including key chains and t-shirts.
