4. Icelandic Phallological Museum
Its official name is the Phallological Museum, but really, let's call a spade a spade: this attraction in the small fishing village of Husavik is Iceland's Penis Museum. As in, all the exhibits display penises. On display are nearly 300 penises from almost 50 different species, including whales, hamsters, seals and, of course, humans. The human penis is actually a recent addition, with the museum finally getting a proper specimen via donation. So why would anyone want to look at a collection of penises? The museum apparently exists to allow individuals to embark on studies in phallology — whether or not that's the case, about 60 per cent of visitors are women. Fortunately for interested travellers, the museum recently changed ownership and is scheduled to move back to its original home, the capital of Reykjavik, in 2012.

More Before the advent of agriculture 10,000 years ago, humans got their food by hunting, gathering, and fishing. Scientists are turning to these ancient methods of subsistence for insights into how we can feed our growing global population in years to come—without overwhelming the planet. In its September 2014 issue, National Geographic magazine explores the evolution of the human diet across a wide spectrum of cultures: http://www.nationalgeographic.com/foodfeatures/evolution-of-diet/ By 2050 we'll need to feed two billion more people.
