We really just went in for the gift shop but paid to go in because everyone was laughing inside. It was funny and not super expensive.

Small, unique 'museum'. Admission is 1.500 kr and it's a fun and interesting site worth checking out if you are spending time in the city!

Despite not being a large museum (one main room with some smaller attached rooms), there were a lot of specimens to look at. Very interesting and bizarre at the same time. Funny items in the gift shop.

Bizarre, interesting, very busy museum in Reykjavik. Hundreds of penises from many different animals, bull scrotums used as lamp shades. Comical items, postcards, t-shirts and souvenirs available.

My husband, sister and I visited this unusual museum. We rented the audio guide, but I don't really recommend it. Most displays have descriptions in English and after about 10 minutes we all turned off the audio guide. The museum is not very big. We...More

You can! The gift shop is in the lobby area. Very small shop though.

Admission for adults: 1250 ISK This is the Icelandic currency, so you need to convert it based on your own currency.

I doubt it. Most countries take that day off of work and the museum is closed on Sundays.
