Penis Museum Back In Reykjavík - The Reykjavik Grapevine

Penis Museum Back In Reykjavík

Published October 13, 2011

No more will phallologists the world over have to travel to Húsavík to witness penis specimens from other species, as the Icelandic Penis Museum has moved back to the capital.
Originally in Reykjavík, the Icelandic Phallological Museum moved up north a few years ago, where it continued to attract attention, not least of all thanks to the donation of its first human specimen from avowed Nazi sympathiser Páll Árason. Those in the capital area who missed being able to simply walk downtown to visit the museum will now have cause to rejoice: the museum is moving back to Reykjavík.
The current curator, Sigurður Hjartarson, says that he has grown too old and tired to maintain the museum any longer, but his son Hjörtur will take over, and open the museum near the bus station Hlemmur. A large container of penises arrived in the capital yesterday to fill the space.
12,000 people visited the museum in Húsavík last summer, so attendance levels next summer are expected to be even greater.
