About the author

In my profession I have the rare fortune to combine my two greatest passions: travelling and writing. Even as a child, I couldn't get excited about a week of pure beach holidays.

The Icelandic Phallological Museum is the only museum in the world that exhibits phalli of all of a country's native mammals.

Located at Reykjavík city centre, the museum currently holds over 200 phalli and parts of phalli of nearly all of Iceland's marine and terrestrial mammals. You can find 56 exhibits of 17 different whale species, one of a bear, 38 samples of seven seal and walrus species, as well as 120 terrestrial mammals' phalli. In 2011, a human phallus was added to the exhibition.

Along with the exhibited body parts, you can visit over 350 objects of art and utility from the same subject area at the Icelandic Phallological Museum.

Historical Information

Phallology is an ancient science that has rarely been dealt with as a primary subject in the past. It has commonly been discussed as a part of other scientific disciplines, such as science of art, psychology, literature, or history. The Icelandic Phallological Museum is the first to enable an organised, seperate, scientific approach.

How to get there

The Icelandic Phallological Museum is located at the centre of Iceland's capital Reykjavík. The easiest way to get there is on public transport. Busses stop right at Laugavegur, the street where the museum is situated.
