Would you like to experience an old-fashioned general store? Have a coffee, ice cream, and homemade pastries? You are welcome to stop by for a relaxing visit.
Vognildsbua is an old-fashioned shop with a history that dates back to 1860’s. The main building is among the oldest general stores that still intact in Norway today. The store was opened in 1860 and was in operation until the mid. 1980’s. Back in the day, Vognildsbua was a meeting place for the locals as much as it was a place to shop. The selection was varied - you could purchase the most necessary goods needed in everyday life, like flour, sugar, salt, clothing, shoes, fabrics and medicine.
Vognildsbua, 7 kilometers west of Oppdal and can easily be reached by foot or by bike from Oppdal.
The old general store is part of a collection of restored buildings. "Pakkhuset" is now restored and is working as a cafeteria with a possibility of seating 60 people.
Vognildsbua has an open museum, shop and cafeteria all through the summer season.
