Celtic Connections on the Icelandic Coast: A Visit to the Akranes Folk Museum (S01/E07)
Akranes is a coastal town in the southwest region of Iceland with a growing population of about 7,000. They have a unique heritage, as the area was settled in large part by Celts, not Norsemen. The charming Akranes Folk Museum has been around for almost 60 years. I sat down with the museum’s director Jón Allansson to discuss the town’s unique history and their surprising connection to the current US president.
