I'm all about supporting small business so I was happy to pay the fee (I think it was like 10 or 15 bucks) but....it was ok. They have a little museum and the tour is maybe 30 minutes or so depending how long you want to take pictures. I was lucky to go on a sunny day and it was... More

The tour guide is very informative but there are very few photo ops with the large animals. I understand the safety factor but for the price they charge for a 45 minute tour I expected more photos. They do however let you feed the babies through the fence but not worth $11 per person

We had a great tour of the Musk Ox farm and saw some baby musk oxen. We enjoyed the history and vision of the farm. It is a great stop for all ages.

Stopped at the Musk Oxen farm. Took the tour and enjoyed learning about this research facility and seeing Musk Ox in all their glory. The guide was well versed in the history, general info and biological aspects unique to this facility. Kids and adults enjoyed sharing grasses and dandelions with the babies and some adult oxen. I fully recommend this... More

I was on my way to Wasilla from Tok during my annual solo road trip when I saw the sign for the Musk Ox Farm. I was intrigued, I wasn't even sure what a musk ox was! I immediately decided I HAD to go and find out and I'm glad I did. I thought the tour was very reasonably priced.... More

This was a great choice for a stop - the guide was very informative and answered all the questions about musk ox and their operation at the farm. We had BOGO coupons and it made it very affordable. (Adult admission regular price is $11). It is an open air tour so be sure to dress appropriately, including good footwear. These... More

Pick a warm day as all is in the open. Great for kids and safe. Lots of interesting information was given on the walk around. Go early in the day around feed time as they are more active.
