  • If you want to pay £20 to look at preserved phalluses of mainly seals but some humans and other animals then this is the place for you. IF you don’t don’t bother!  more »
  • Lured in with sniggering crowds and thoughts of what funny things we could tell family and friends back home. Quite expensive price to essentially wander round a big living room filled with mainly wha...  more »
  • While the gentleman who assembled the penis samples in this museum was definitely focused on science, I daresay that most visitors to this museum go to satisfy a sense of curiosity and/or (as was the ...  more »

  • 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.
  • Not what you would expect! A lot of fun and really interesting. Buy your gifts here, they have really subtle t-shirts. Expect to stay around 30-45 min. It's right downtown so you can grab a bite and do some shopping after.
  • The Icelandic Penis museum is a one of a kind experience. An interesting collection of real mammalian penises that is educational and interesting that focuses on the evolutionary bits of the different species. A bit steep of an entrance fee but definitely a memorable experience. Stop by if you're shopping in the area.
