But for some, Iceland brings to mind something even more elemental than magma and steam and screaming women: penises.
Reykjavik is the home to the Icelandic Phallogical Museum (or the Penis Museum, if you aren’t trying to be so high-fallutin’ about it), and many a vistor to the capital city have had the pleasure of browising through what is said to be the world’s largest display of penises (and some of the world’s largest penises) and penile parts (ouch).
Originally housed in the town of Husavik, the 280 penis collection, including four human specimens, the first of which was taken from a 95-year-old (yes, he was deceased) was moved to Reykjavik in 2012 after it was taken over by the son of founder Sigurður Hjartarson.
