An alert reporter noticed that the property at Laugavegur 116 was being put up for sale. Concerned that this may mean the closure of the penis museum, he called the curator, Hjörtur Gísli Sigurðsson.
Hjörtur provided assurances that not only was the museum going to live on; it is also moving to a new location.
At some point next month, the Icelandic Phallological Museum will be located in the basement of the H&M currently at Hafnartorg, and will be “almost three times bigger” in terms of square meterage, Hjörtur explained. He added that there will be new additions to the museum, including a café.
The penis museum has been a source of curiosity and fascination for many visitors to Iceland, and this will likely continued to be the case even after being out of immediate public view.
