Interesting but too expensive for what they give. $11 for a visit where you see a few musk ox, get a 5-minute talk. That's it...

We detoured, on our way to Denali, into Palmer. We had a short tour and fed the musk ox. It is great learning about and touching these animals from the Ice Age!

This farm is a slight detour from Route 3 that we took while driving from Anchorage to Denali. There is also a reindeer farm in the vicinity but we decided to see the musk ox because we knew less about them. The farm tour begins on the deck of the visitor center/store with an introduction to musk ox and an... More

A fun way to spend about an hour seeing and learning about these impressive animals. The tour itself is about 30 min and you walk in the field around pastures while a guide tells you about the animals you are looking at. The cost was 11.00 pp, but to us it was worth the money

It was only a short drive off the main route to get to see some of these beautiful animals. When can you ever say you've been able to be up front and personal with a musk ox! It is a little dirty and muddy and smelly. but the creatures were a nice site to see. Wonderful friendly staff too.

It was interesting to see the musk ox and hear all the details. Our guide was very nice and knowledgeable. The only negative was that it started raining and even sleeted on us while we were there, but overall a good visit.

We stopped here to take the musk ox tour. Raven, our tour guide, did a great job. We walked thru the pastures on a path and were able to see many of the musk ox. The setting is gorgeous, with mountains within sight.

Decided to visit the farm as a last minute thing to do, and I am so glad that we did. Our tour guide, Elizabeth, was very informative and an excellent guide. We were able to feed the yearlings dandelions at the end of the tour which was a great highlight of our trip.

I always take out of state visitors here because those little musk ox calves are so cute. A great learning experience for any age and a beautiful setting in the valley.

Ok this was a cool place. No really mean cold. No heat in the building and it was warmer outside than in. This made it difficult for me to walk around looking at all the displays they had on the Musk Ox. It was pretty cool... A there I go again on the cold. Inside is free but you want... More
