House of the Phallus

Nestled in the small fishing village of Husavik, nearly 500 miles from Iceland's capital, lay the Icelandic Phallological Museum -- a pee-pee museum.

Curator, Sigurdur Hjartarson, began collecting peni when he was a school administrator.  At the time, he says it was "just a hobby" and he had no idea he would one day run a museum dedicated to the subject.  Of all the phalli on display, Hjartarson has paid only for one -- an elephant's penis.  The largest in the collection is from a sperm whale (5'5"); the smallest, from a hamster (at only 2mm, it must be viewed under a microscope).

The one penis he is missing is that of a human's, but he has five donors from around the world who have offered theirs for display once they're done with it.  The Icelandic Phallological Museum attracted 6000 visitors in 2007, 60% of whom were female.
