We really wanted to view muskoxen in the wild, but found it would be too difficult to do so. Lucky for us, we found "The Musk Ox Farm" in Palmer Alaska. The tour was interesting seeing these magnificent prehistoric animals, and it finished with the precious little calves. We were happy when we found out we could pick grass and... More

Saw the sign and stopped in while in the area. They are dedicated to the preservation of the Musk Ox, and have a small museum that shows the history of the animal, the life cycle, and their efforts to preserve the critters. They offer a tour that lets you pet the critters, but charge an admission cost for that.

Nice little stop to learn about the farm and musk ox in general. Tour is about 45 minutes as you learn the history of the farm and facts about musk ox. The tour included walking around the pens to get a close up look and to take pictures. There is also a small museum and gift shop.

They were technically closed but still gave us a tour. The tour guide was awesome and answered all our questions. I was so happy that we had a chance to see the musk ox and the new candy babies!

While the musk oxen are cool. The staff here was very rude and the cost is outrageous. $15 to walk outside and look at the muskoxen.

Learned a lot of information about the local Musk Ox and got to view some lovely scenery at the same time. Guide was informative and lots to learn. Worth a short stop with the tour lasting about 45 mins.

Who doesn't want to see a bunch of muskox up close? The tour is very informative and interesting. You also have the chance to buy clothing made from qiviut, the warmest, softest, and strongest fibers available (directly from the muskox).
