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.

Loved the tour though it was raining while we were there. Got to see the babies, juveniles and adults. Commend this place for trying to protect and bring back this wonderful animal!

We enjoyed seeing the musk ox farm. This is a small, but interesting attraction. As with all animals you never know how close they will come to the fence, but we were luckily to get one to come up close so we could feed and take photos. The tour was interesting and they have a small gift shop. This is... More
