Gammelbutikken (The old store) was built sometime in the 1870's as a general store with all types of goods like food, equipment, clothes, fishing gear and whatever else that was needed in a fishing village on Senja. In addition to being a general store it also functioned as office for the local fish landing factory and shipping agent. The second floor was used as accommodation for fishermen seeking shelter and somewhere to sleep. Today's furnishing are the originals from 1925 and the store today appears much the same as it did a long time ago. Gammelbutikken today is a combination of museum, souvenir shop and cafe serving baked goods, coffee, drinks, ice cream and old fashioned candy. Variety of handcrafted goods from local Senja artists.
