Obscura Day 2015: Monsters of the World at the Icelandic Sea Monster Museum

Skrímslasetrið hosts a special Obscura Day program for the little ones!

Everything your children ever wanted to know about cryptids...

Boys and girls, join us at Skrímslasetrið to learn all about the monsters of the world! We'll start our day with a special discussion of cryptids and monsters around the world before taking a guided tour through the Sea Monster Museum to view Skrímslasetrið's new interactive world map depicting legendary animals as of yet unrecognized by science. We'll share a few of their stories, and then take a walk on the beach with a local story teller to share our own experiences and mysterious creature-sightings. Keep your eyes on the water, if you are very lucky you just might spot a special sea monster of your own!

Our day will end with a cryptid contest, girls against boys, to compete for a very special prize--the Monster Cup, of course! Afterwards, there will be pancakes for all!
