Iceland's Penis Museum Gets First Human Member

Iceland's penis museum finally got its featured "member," in 2011.

Pall Arason, who died at the age of 95, donated his "pickled penis" to the Phallological Museum, giving the bizarre exhibit its very first human specimen.

Sigurdur Hjartarson, Arason's friend and the museum's curator, says that Arason's posthumous gift helps to complete the growing collection of whale, bear, seal and other mammalian private parts.

Located in the fishing town of Husavik, the museum boasts a collection of over 209 penises and penile parts "belonging to almost all the land and sea mammals that can be found in Iceland," according to the museum website.

According to the medical director of nearby Akureyri Hospital, a doctor at the local morgue supervised the operation, which was carried out in January.

The museum has been open since 1997 without a human specimen.
