Unveiling of a human specimen at the Phallological Museum

The Icelandic Phallological Museum has now completed its collection of phallus specimen from Icelandic mammals. Dr. Pétur Pétursson, who oversaw the removal and preservation process, unveiled a human specimen at the museum today. The specimen is from a 95-year old Icelandic man, Páll Arason, who died earlier this year. Mr. Arason announced his donation in 1996. The museum now displays phallus specimen from all 46 different species of mammals in Icelandic. The small museum in Húsavík was filled with reporters at the unveiling.

“This is an impressive specimen that I hope will increase interest in phallology,” Icelandic Phallological Museum founder, Sigurður Hjartarson says.
