You’ll feel like you’re in Petersburg’s liv­ing room in the homey muse­um. The Clausen Memo­r­i­al Muse­um is as much a fam­i­ly log­book as a com­mu­ni­ty muse­um, a place where res­i­dents are asked to try to iden­ti­fy the faces of old pic­tures. The muse­um also boasts the unof­fi­cial largest king salmon, an 127-pounder land­ed on a local fish­ing boat.
