There is an entire museum dedicated to displaying phalluses and penile parts in Reykjavík, the capital city. There are penises taken from whales, seals and land mammals on display at the museum.

It got its first human penis in 2011 but the detachment didn’t go as planned, as the exhibition is unattractive.

The museum continues its search for a younger and bigger penis from would-be donors.
