"You can be educated and at the same time can have fun," said Hjortur Sigurdsson, one of the manager of the museum. All come from a long story that is part of his story.
Starting from his father, Sigurdur Hjartarson, a historian who works as a teacher for 37 years with an idea that might be less common, but it is unique. In 1997, his father opened a museum with a collection of genitals as much as 62 specimens only.
I'm sure they really have a good sense of humor, something that might not have thought of others before him, he was moved to do so.
1980, Hjartarson has added a collection of 13 specimens, 9 of terrestrial mammals and four whales, continues to grow more as many as 34 specimens for a decade.
You will know, after a few years he was also thinking to show the penis of the human species, Sigurdsson said that human specimens sent by donor Icelandic 96-year-old, but he was worried about the penis shrinks with age.
Well, the hard work of Sigurdsson was not in vain, because the museum is developing in such a way, citing the Daily Mail, you can enjoy the presentation of the human penis exhibited together with the penis of a variety of other animals, both marine animals and mammals.
Just believe, you will feel the shock witnessed various types of penis sizes, ranging from the smallest size, owned by two millimeter-sized hamster, and up to the largest penis size of 1.7 meter long sperm whale.

"I came to see if it is true, that there is a penis museum in Reykjavík."
