Description

There lies a yellow pearl by the sea at Hemmestad. Time has stood still here for almost 200 years. History is everywhere. The store, the cod liver barrel and the nordlandsboat that bathe in the sun on the pebble beach, help to create a magical feeling from days gone by. Today the trading post is a museum where the old building on the wharf stands intact with shop, post office, store and museum exhibitions.

Opening hours 23.06.-14.06.2011: Tuesday – Thursday 10:00 – 16:00 Saturday and Sunday 11:00 – 17:00 Off-season by appointment.
