On the first floor you’ll find a small shop where you can buy local literature, handicraft objects and other great gifts.
The old Shell station
If you walk north along the Sjøgata Street and into Strandgata Street you’ll find Norway’s second oldest gas station. This great Shell station was built in 1933 and was protected by the Directorate for Cultural Heritage in 2016. The station is open in the summer season (July) or in request.
At Dolstad just by the Dolstad church you will find Bygdetunet Museum. Here you’ll find traditional farm buildings which tell the story of the living conditions in the Vefsn area over a period of 300 years. In one of the buildings they have an exhibition about the gorgeous Nordlandsbunaden (traditional folk costume). Bygdetunet Museum is open in the summer season.
