The musk ox farm is a must visit for anyone who comes to Alaska. If for no other reason than to get up close to an animal you will never see anywhere else. The history of the musk ox, it's use as a natural resource, and it's role in the lives of Alaska Natives is fascinating. Bottom line - you... More

This is a super place to visit- low key but it is a real working farm, not just a tourist attraction. I have an agricultural background so I really enjoyed the history and not just seeing the animals. This is my 2nd visit to the farm and will come back again if I'm in Alaska- note, it isn't a large... More

Interesting to se the baby musk ox in the spring and early summer. Fun for at least one, short visit.

The tours and events at the Musk Ox Farm are amazing. The musk ox are amazing animals, and if you are lucky enough to visit when they are close the fences, it is a tremendous experience.

Particularly for mothers day when price is better. Is it pricey for what it is, probably, is the staff always informed, no not really, but where else are you going to see that many musk oxen in one place. The 4-7 year old set loves seeing them.

A friend insisted visiting the Musk Ox Farm, so that's why I went there. I was pleasantly surprised -- the guide was knowledgeable and enthusiastic and the Musk Oxes were adorable. Definitely something to see if you are in Palmer.

We saw a brochure of the Musk Ox farm which looked interesting enough to try. Upon arrival, two young girls talked it up and encouraged us to take the tour. The price was higher than the brochure indicated, but we bought in anyway. We were told we would leave in ten minutes. We browsed the store and buildings while we... More

We found this tour both educational and enjoyable. Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. Visit was wort the fee. In May there were new babies that we had a chance to view.

We were looking for something to see that fit into our time frame on our last day on the road before returning to Anchorage . We had stopped in the Oomingmak Musk Ox Producers' Co-operative store in Anchorage earlier and since the Musk Ox farm was on the way we decided to stop and see what it was about. We... More

What a great place to visit. If you have a chance to visit Palmer, go to the Musk Ox Farm. What a treat to see such adorable creatures and learn more about them. The highlights are Little Man and of course the babies. You can go in and wander around the small museum and learn about musk ox and the... More
