After seeing a tourism video in our hotel highlighting the muskox, we headed an hour north of Anchorage to visit the Musk Ox Farm. Upon arrival at the farm, the gate was closed and a sign was posted that said "Tours By Appointment Only During Winter". But it's not winter for another seven weeks ! Had we known in advance,...

I do love the musk ox farm. Though I have been there numerous times it is still exciting to see the little ones and their moms too. They are so big and shaggy they almost seem to belong from ancient of days. This place has an awesome view. It is so well maintained, not like visiting a stinky animal farm.... More

this was a nice little farm that we learned a lot about the musk ox and it was very enjoyable. Short and sweet. Would recommend.

Our trip to the Musk Ox Farm in Palmer was great. The tour was interesting and see those magnificent creatures was fantastic. We love it so much, we adopted a little musk ox named Olive.

It is an awesome experience to see these animals. The farm near Palmer, Alaska is beautiful and their musk ox are well care for. The tour guide constantly moves photographers away from the fence even when the musk ox are hundreds of feet away and sleeping. At a distance of a few feet from the fence all you get is... More

In reading some of the other reviews, I feel badly that people didn't get the photo ops they wanted, or didn't think they were getting their money's worth by visiting the farm. I willingly spent the $11 per adult admission fee, not because I wanted to get a lot in return for it, but because I knew a part of... More

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.

Driving from Homer, Alaska to Tok Alaska we stop at the Musk Ox Farm. It was good to see them because we probably wouldn't get to see them any where else. The guide had lot's of information about the ox. It was a easy path to follow. The only thing, These animals God made, were made for cold weather, I... More
