  • This is an interesting park the rescues and breeds endangered crane species. There is a walking tour of the birds and if you enjoy wildlife and helping nature, it would be a good place to visit.  more »
  • Please make the time to stop here, one hour minimum, two hours ideal. Watch the short movie by Whooping Cranes exhibit and 15 minute movie at visitor's center. Excellent t gift shop. If you have extra...  more »
  • We saw a sign for the International Crane Foundation as we drove north on 12 through Baraboo. We were surprised and simultaneously said, "Let's do it!" We were not disappointed. The adult fee is ~$10,...  more »

  • The tour was interesting and the different cranes were wonderful to watch. However, some of the pens are long and narrow, and the cranes sometimes stay at the back preventing a good view. Also, some of the cranes stay in their enclosure and cannot be viewed. The Whooping Crane exhibit had one crane visible but the angle for the viewing area was awkward. The foundation does good work but my sense was they tolerate visitors rather than encourage them. Nice gift shop.
  • Totally disappointed. We were told we had to watch a 15 minute video and then go on a GUIDED tour that lasted 1 1/2 - 2 hours. The website says "You may also explore the site on your own". There were not many cranes, maybe 1-2 in every other cage. Not meant for kids, especially when it's 90° out and the tour moves at a snails pace.
  • We were able to explore the entire area with or without a guided tour. We took an unguided tour and saw many beautiful birds from all over the world. Did you know baby cranes look like baby ducks?
  • Facinating place. When we were there the cranes seemed as curious about us as we were them so they came right up to the fence allowing for great pics and close ups. Its worth the time.
  • Great place to see cranes. Lots to learn. Friendly staff.
