The Old Shop in Å
The Fishing Village Museum has taken over the running of the grocer’s
shop in Å, in premises from 1843. The old timber walls have been
uncovered and the premises have been renovated. We combine our museum
reception desk with the running of the shop and can therefore stay open
all year round.
Shop opening times :
Monday-Thursday 11:00 – 15:00
Fridays 11:00 – 19:00
Saturdays 11 – 15 .
JANUARY - MAY 2012:
