Visit the International Crane Foundation


As we stand in solidarity with everyone who has been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, we are saddened that we will not be celebrating our Grand Opening on June 27 as planned.

We look forward to a soft opening of our site later this year, when we will welcome you back to stroll our beautiful new exhibits and prairies. View our Facebook album for photos of our headquarters’ renovation.

The International Crane Foundation is the only place on Earth where you can see all 15 of the world’s crane species!

Located in Baraboo amid the farmlands of southern Wisconsin, the International Crane Foundation’s headquarters are just ten minutes from the Wisconsin Dells and surrounding Baraboo Hills. Visitors to our site may enjoy a guided tour of the world’s cranes, take a hike on our nature trails, and browse nature-themed items from around the world in our gift shop.

Looking for a fun family day trip? Watch this short video from Buzzed Into Madison to help plan your next visit to our headquarters!
