Our New Neighbours, The Johnsons

Our New Neighbours, The Johnsons

Published December 8, 2011

The Johnsons just moved to town! One thousand ISK and a sense of humour grants you entrance to the Icelandic Phallological Museum, which relocated from the north of Iceland to Reykjavík this winter. A visit to the penis museum is of course an ideal holiday activity for the whole family!
Large, itty-bitty, and just plain MASSIVE phallic curio from 92 different species of mammals cover every surface of the museum.  Some larger specimens are mounted like big game trophies, but most are preserved in jars.
The museum has a collection of 272 specimens…including human.  The human penis was donated to the museum just this year, and more are on the way.  Certified letters of intent from future human donors are framed and hanging on the walls for visitors to read.
Do not miss: phallograms, and penises of Sea Monster and Hidden Man. From stained glass wall hangings, to household items and bronze casts, the Johnsons are everywhere…and now they are in Reykjavík! Go introduce yourself to the new neighbors, why don´t you?
Visit www.phallus.is for more information.
Where: Laugavegur 116
When: Open 11:00-18:00 daily
How Much: 1000 ISK, free for kids under 12
