Historic shop

Our historic shop Avlangrud offer nostalgic shopping.

In the main street in the Town section of the open-air museum you will find the Avlangerud historic shop. The shop is open in the high season in the summer and on special events.

H. Avlangrud grocers shop was originally located at Storgata 78 at Lillehammer. The shop specialised in “select groceries” and obtained most of the available exotic groceries for customers from near or far.

Coffee was one of the specialities and this tradition has been carried on in the museum shop at Maihaugen. The shop also offer sweets, marmelades and tea.
