The manliest museum everReykjavik, Iceland

Marvel at mounted whale weenies measuring more than a metre long, ogle the embalmed member of a 600-kilogram polar bear, and snicker at a lampshade fashioned from 10 sheep scrotums at the Icelandic Phallological Museum.

There are 215 penises in total – representing every mammal found in Iceland, as well as a few foreigners – in this celebration of male virility, alongside various phallus-themed artefacts.

Gents beware: a serious loss of confidence can often follow a visit. If this is your type of exhibition, then the William P Didusch Center for Urologic History in Washington DC is worth investigating too.

get there

A taxi ride here takes 45 minutes from the international airport, so it makes a great stopover activity if you don’t have time for a dip in the famous Blue Lagoon.

Entry costs about US$8 and it’s open seven days a week.

The whole tour will only take 30 to 60 minutes.
