Fishing gear and sou’wester, a good book, a warm sweater or a nice memory from your holiday? The old shop, located in the centre of the fishing village, has a large selection and open all year round. In summer, the “Service House” by the parking lot also offers a rich collection of gifts and useful items. Welcome in! (The old shop is always open when the museum is open).
The Service House: Gifts & Service
The service house is located by the large parking lot (drive through the tunnel on arrival at Å). In summer, you can buy a museum ticket here and get information about the museum and bakery. You can also buy various gifts and souvenirs (clothes, books, postcards, etc.) in the fine store.
In the building you will find public toilets, which are open all year round.
A new sweater, a practical southwest or a bag of tea from Lofoten? In Gammelbutikken (open all year) and suvenirbutikken (summer open) by the parking lot, the selection is large and exciting for most people.
