Where is the Yule Cat? - Treasure Trail

  • 1.12.2021 - 6.1.2022, National Museum of Iceland

The Yule Cat has sneaked into the National Museum, and is hiding in 10 places among the objects.

In the olden days many people only had one set of clothes. Everyone was supposed to get at least one new piece of clothing for Christmas, or the frightening Yule Cat would come and get them.

The Yule Cat has sneaked into the National Museum, and is hiding in 10 places at the Museum. The cat is black and wears a red ribbon around its neck. Read the clues, answer the questions and see if you can find the Yule Cat.

The Treasure Trail is available at the reception desk from 1 December to 6 January. It is a fun activity for families.

Available in English (as well as Icelandic).
