Description

Clausen Memorial Museum assists you as you explore the beauty and bounty of the Stikine River delta, Coastal mountain glaciers and the Mitkof, Kupreanof and mainland areas. Logging and fishing for salmon, halibut, black cod, crab, shrimp and more are just some of the attractions that have drawn hard-working people to make a living in this area for at least two thousand years. Find out how to catch a halibut, rig a long-line, peel a shrimp, harvest a forest, set a fish trap, make lutefisk and clean a salmon. Enjoy a trip to the past and see cannery equipment, the Cape Decision light lens, a Tlingit canoe, the Fisk sculpture, the world's largest mounted king salmon and much more. Special programs for adults and children are presented during the year. The museum shop, and easy access to parking, rest rooms and exhibit areas are provided.
