A former teacher with 37 years experience from Iceland, Sigurdur Hjartarson, is the proud founder and owner of the world's largest penis collection.

MirrorUK reports that the former teacher was said to have set up the set up the weird museum because he felt that 'Somebody had to do it.' The museum has a collection of 282 penises of different shapes and sizes, from 93 different species of animals all over the world.

Sizes vary from a huge sperm whale's 1.7-metre phallus - the largest exhibited - to the tiny penis bone of a hamster. Among the penises on display are those of a polar bear, dolphins, a walrus, fish, an elephant and a man. Visitors to the museum can also look at a range of genital-themed artifacts.

Hjartarson's bizarre obsession started as a child in 1974 when he was given a bull's penis to use as a whip on animals and he opened his museum in 1997 with 62 specimens. He told AFP:

"Some of my teachers used to work in summer in a nearby whaling station and after the first specimen they started bringing me whale penises, supposedly to tease me. Then the idea came up gradually that it might be interesting collecting specimens from more mammalian species."

The fascination for all things penis has even become a family business. Hjortur Sigurdsson, the founder’s son took over in 2011 and set about modernizing the museum.

"It all started as a joke. My father had fun just collecting, doing something no one has done before. He always said 'somebody had to do it." He told AFP

Visitors can pick up souvenirs like "Designer condoms" and woollen "willy warmers", knitted to resemble a snake and an elephant's trunk.
