You might try to classify the town museum as its one tourist attraction, but you would be wrong. The museum’s charm comes from its relevance for people who live here, as a storehouse for their collective memory. The Clausen Museum houses 5,000 artifacts, 45,000 photographs and negatives, and 200 archival collections relevant to the town’s history. Consequently, there’s a lot about fish and commercial fishing, including the display of the largest king salmon ever harvested, at 126.5 pounds, which a Petersburg commercial fisherman landed.
