    The World's Only *** Museum

    by redsaga Updated Aug 14, 2005

    Well if you're in Reykjavik, why not have at look at the world's only *** museum? In an alley in the main shopping street Laugavegur Sigurdur Hjartason has found a very unusual way to attract tourists. He has over the years collected no less than 40 of Iceland's mammal species and 8 from other countries in the museum's foreign section. There is for exampe a one metre long blue whale's dried *** and next to it a drawin that shows that the piece is actually only half of its full length.

    Two humans have allready volunteered to leave their secual organs as a legacy.

    There is also a gift shop selling more than just postcards. There are a range of handmade items like a wooden hanging light with dried bull and ram scrotums for lampshades, skipping ropes with phallic handles and coatracks with *** pegs. However, handmade items are usually pretty expensive so the prices are 68 USD for the lamps and 26 for the skipping rope.

    Hjartason is a very friendly man that's more than happy to show you everything in the tiny museum and tell you a story about every item.

    PS. I see that VT doesn't allow the P-word, but I guess you can figure it out anyway. DS.

    Well, it is pretty much surprising to discover a museum behind a trendy street with shops and restaurants...It is even more surprising to discover that the museum is The Icelandic Phallological Museum! This is exactly what happend to me...Right behind Laugavegur a few blocks going east is what is also known as the 'Pen** Museum'...Hold on to your wooly socks my friend...The owner has a passion for collecting the animal species, mythological and hopefully one day the human pen**(so far he has a few offers from men who are willing to donate their pen** to the museum). You will find anywhere from a tiny mouse's pen** to a large whale penismounted on the walls and in jars of formaldhyde...The quirky museum owner does'nt stop there either...Among the eighty or so specimins the owner's own creation of lamp shades fashioned from bull's testicle skins adorn the tiny but quaint gallery...They are available for purchase if that is your decorating style...Do not forget to sign the gentlemans guest book and take many pictures because chances are your friends are'nt going to believe you...
