Pirates, we know you guys love Iceland for its stunning waterfalls, lagoons, and of course, the Northern Lights.

But did you know that Iceland is also home to the world's only penis museum?

Based in Reykjavik, the Icelandic Phallological Museum is completely dedicated to penises - and not just the human variety. The collection from one of Iceland's lesser known attractions contains a whopping 282 penis specimens from 93 different animal species.

Naturally, a large chunk of the collection celebrates the shafts of mammals found in Icelandic lands and waters. This includes whales, narwhals, dogs and mice, amongst others. Well, who hasn't ever secretly wanted to see those in the flesh?

But size really doesn't matter in this extensive site, since walls are decorated as far as the eye can see with penises from across the world, in a true testament to the science of Phallology.

There's also a section dedicated to penis utensils from across the decades, a host of phallic sculptures, as well as a folklore section for the penises of "elves" and "mermen".

This phallus palace was erected in 1997, but holds a long history for founder and former secondary school teacher, Sigurour Hjartarson.

Hjartarson was head teacher at a secondary school when he received a bull's penis as a gift. His colleagues then began bringing him whale penises (where the hell do they find these things?!) and the rest is history. By the time the museum opened in Iceland's capital city, Hjartarson had collected 62 penis specimens.

His son then took a hefty career turn when he quit his job as a logistics manager in 2011 in head up the museum. Well, when there's a will(y), there's a way.

The museum is open seven days a week and costs 1500 IK (around £11) for entry. There isn't a restaurant onsite, so you'll need to get your meat and two veg elsewhere.

Luckily, the museum does have a souvenir shop, for those looking to bring friends and family some unique gifts home from their trip. Vsitors can buy penis-shaped mugs, magnets, t-shirts, sweets, key rings and bottle openers.

We're sure your gran will, er, love it.
