  • This is an incredible facility. The animals are well cared for, and the guides are knowledgeable and personable. I called the education director about bringing my class to the farm, and she was willing to create a specific program for whatever we were studying at the time. The Musk Ox Farm is truly unique and definitely a must-see if you are looking for a knitters paradise and/or fun learning experience.
  • We had a great time at the farm. There is an educational portion to begin with indoors, then the outdoor section where you get to see and sort of interact with the musk ox. They are adorable and so interesting! There is a free guide that provides a lot of information and is very personable. We got to touch a baby musk ox, handle some of the soft yarn, and even feed one of the juvenile musk ox! FYI - Dress in clothes for being outdoors as it may be chilly or muddy (it is a farm, after all). There is a gift shop, but it can be pricey since the yarn is a bit rare. Definitely go, it's a great opportunity to see this unique and prehistoric animal!
  • Fiber artists take note ... do not pass this gem up! We had a wonderful visit and tour at Musk Ox Farm. It was the first left after the Hatcher's Pass turn off, and very easy to find. We really admired their animal husbandry practices. The musk oxen were wonderful to see and our tour guide was fun! The items in the gift shop were a delight as well. For long wear, warmth, and comfort Quivit cannot be beaten. I cannot wear wool, and love wearing Quivit. So soft and warm. This is a must see stop for all knitters, and fiber artists of all kinds.
  • You should go. You'll learn all kinds of things you didn't know. $11 for adults.
  • All the employees are there with passion, great in-depth tour of there compound and conservation efforts.
