Strange !

Me and my wife stopped in here for a laugh and I can honestly say it's one of the strangest places I've ever visited, if you've got 20 mins to kill have a look for yourself!!

Aside from the obvious draw, it was educational as well. small but packed with all kinds of biological samples, cultural references and items. If nothing else, the gift shop is super fun.

We had seen this advertised a couple of times and happened to walk past it and thought why not. It cost the equivalent £15 per head to get in so was fairly expensive and you can get round it in less than an hour and that's taking time to read everything! Had I known before how small it was (and... More

Had 20 minutes to kill before our bus came. I felt like I was in a porn shop. The displays appeared to be somewhat professional but there some creepy people there. I never had a burning urge to see animal genitals in a jar and can't say I have a sense of fulfillment now that I have. The gift shop... More

You probably won't find another museum like this anywhere. It's small, but size isn't everything! It's pretty weird, but also interesting, and definitely put together by someone with a sense of humour. Definitely a must-visit if you're in Reykjavik.

We went in on our last day expecting something whimsical and interesting, but it is what it is, a series of penis specimens from the animal kingdom. It's about 11GBP entry and you can see it all in like 15 mins. We didn't think it was worth it really. There are better things to do with 1500isk in Reykjavik.

A quirky little museum of animal penises... the gift shop is better than the museum. But you do get to see a lot of random items!

This was too close to the hotel to miss - it is a one-of-a-kind museum and rather fascinating. Everyone who knew we planned to visit wanted souvenirs and we did not disappoint. Bragging rights to say you've been, but the variety and even the imaginative use of the phalluses were rather intriguing. The logo is only obvious when you realize... More

Would recommend going for the novelty alone! We spent about 30 mins here. It's not a big museum: an open room with a few smaller rooms to see. It was 1500 isk to get in. Although it's a little funny, I learned a few new and interesting things too!

Interesting collection of phallus in the animal kingdom as well as whimsical artifacts. The collection is somewhat scattered about with some interesting tidbits. What is particularly disappointing is the gift shop. The marketing team is losing out on a money making opportunity.
