I imagined this place was full of interesting phallic art, but instead it was a small museum comprised of mostly preserved animals. Both myself and my friend felt a bit nauseous as we worked our way through the museum, so I do not recommend for the squeamish. That being said, I did learn a few things and it is an... More

On the far east end of Laugavegur is a small museum of penises from a variety of mammals. Most of them are in glass vessels in fixative-such as formaldehyde. There is minimal sexual overtones IMHO--but a factual scientific though odd collection. There is also a small "gift" shop which maybe entered without and admission ticket (1500 ISK). Although there were... More

Has that "old curiosity shop" appeal. As expected it's full of phallus of all shapes and sizes. It's weird and interesting and a fun way to while away an hour indoors.

If you're looking for something different to do then this is worth a visit. The specimens range from hamsters to whales, and includes many other, well, um... conversation pieces.

What a rip off , avoid at all costs! 1500 krona for a small room with animal penises that have minimal to no description. There were some amusing penis memorabilia and some information on the largest human penis on record. But overall a very disappointing experience.

An interesting stop on your way into downtown Reykjavik. More of a biology lesson than anything else and does include a guide in the shape of a folder that you hand back at the end and does have a gift shop with a good sense of humour. Kept our interest for about half hour to 45 minutes before we left.

It's a penis museum. Small in size (the museum and some of the penises) this is worth a quick look around if you're running low on things to do. Entry is a rip off though.

Informative museum with many animal specimens, but the whole museum is quite small. An average visit is probably less than an hour. I enjoyed the mythological section because it made me giggle. The store offers some fun souvenirs.

With over 200 penis specimens mainly from marine mammals, this small museum is exactly what you would expect. It's one main room with three side rooms and can be covered in less than one hour. At Kr1,500 per adult with kids under thirteen free, it's worth a look just to say you have been there !

A surreal experience, but like many things in Iceland it is presented well and in a very matter of fact way. Everyone seemed to be carefully reading the labels to see whether the appendage that they were staring at came from a blue whale, dog, or shrew (to be fair you could tell which was which from those three quite...
