Large Animal Research Station - Review
Locally known as LARS or the Muskox Farm, the centre is managed by the University of Alaska, Fairbanks, which established it in 1970 for the purposes of nutritional, physiological and behavioral research. Now, it also includes reindeer, caribou, and moose colonies. While all visitors can get a glimpse of the animals for free from the parking lot, you need to pay for tours that will take you in the animal's lives and significance (and also let you get up close with the newborn calves).

Large Animal Research Station, Fairbanks Reviews
Beautiful place with amazing animals. The tour guides are fun and informative. Great location to pack a lunch, enjoy the well-groomed outdoor picnic area, and join a 1-hour tour to see and learn all about baby Muskoxen and Reindeer!
Excellent educational tour led by Matthew. This is a great stop for those who want to see and learn about musk ox, carboy, and reindeer. Well done UAF!
Cool place, I probably never would have had the chance to see a live musk ox in my life if it weren't for this place. They sell the musk-ox wool and garments made from the wool. They also gave education speeches about reindeer and caribou and the genetic variants.
You pay $10 a person to look at two pens, which may or may not have musk ox and reindeer close enough to see. You won't get to see the other fields with animals in them. Plus they're only open for 3 months of the year, and then only Wednesday through Sunday. It's basically just a place to rip off tourists. Save your money and go see the reindeer at the Santa Claus House FOR FREE. Or if you're down south in Anchorage visit the Musk Ox farm in Palmer, which will give you a better value.
