Clausen Memorial Museum

Southeast Alaska

This museum holds an interesting collection of artifacts and relics, mostly related to local fishing history. Exhibits include the largest king salmon ever caught (126lbs), a giant lens from the old Cape Decision lighthouse, a Tlingit dugout canoe and the 30-minute film Petersburg: The Town Fish Built. Outside is Fisk, the intriguing fish sculpture that was commissioned in 1967 to honor the Alaska Centennial.
