On your next trip to Iceland, consider an educational endeavor to the penis museum. Open since August of 1997, The Icelandic Phallological Museum (sounds way more sciencey like that, right?) in Rekjavik houses 282 penises and penile parts, from 93 different animal species. 

Boasting an impressively-sized collection, the parts are from mammals native to Iceland, such as whales, seals, walruses, a polar bear, and yes, even humans. As noted on the museum's website, "visitors to the museum will encounter fifty five specimens belonging to sixteen different kinds of whale, one specimen taken from a rogue polar bear, thirty-six specimens belonging to seven different kinds of seal and walrus, and more than one hundred fifteen specimens originating from twenty different kinds of land mammal."

So if you've ever googled what a whale penis looks like, now's your chance to see one up close. Not that you'll need to, of course — a blue whale's penis averages eight to 10 feet, after all. 

While we can make penis puns all day long, it's worth noting that the museum is an intelligent establishment, intended for the use of study into the ancient science of phallology. Located at Laugavegur 116 and open daily from 11am to 6pm, you can take your phallological know-how to the next level, and throw some interesting facts up at your next party. We're sure people will appreciate that.
