“Very Interesting Tour”
Reviewed September 2, 2004

I wouldn't miss this. Great closeups of musk ox with babies, reindeer and caribou. Our guide gave us lots of information on the animals and the research station. We got to handle horns and antlers and feel a musk ox pelt. The guide was very knowledgeable. The gift shop had great t shirts and tiny bags for $1 of samples of musk ox fur. A great chance to see rare animals we never see in Ohio.
