The Icelandic Phallological Museum

The Icelandic Phallological Museum in Husavik, Iceland is the only museum of its kind. It is entirely devoted to the study of the penis.

There is a modest (so to speak) collection of online images, as well as information about the museum's hours ( send e-mail to ). In addition, the museum catalogue is available online.

The museum also maintains a list of "honorary members". These outstanding contributors fall (rise?) into four categories:

Fjöldi gildra heiðurslima : 92 Total Number of Honorary Members
F = FHL = Full-Gildir Heiðurslimir - Donors of genuine, phallic pieces
A = AHL = All-Gildir Heiðurslimir - Donors of extra things, a work of art, etc. and other true benefactors of the Institute
G = GGL = Gildir Gervilimir - Pseudomember, having shown special interest in the works and development of the Institute
Ó = ÓGL = Ógildir Limir - Expelled members

Take note of the categories "Pseudomember" and "Expelled member", neither of which sounds personally appealing.
