International Crane Foundation


Grand Opening 2020

Our iconic crane entrance gates have welcomed thousands of visitors to our headquarters in Baraboo, Wisconsin. The gates were designed by artist Victor Bakhtin and were brought to life by a local metal artist.

The crane’s ancient call is one of resiliency and survival, and it is guiding us during this unprecedented challenge. As we stand in solidarity with everyone who has been affected by this COVID-19 pandemic, we are saddened that we will be unable to share our new visitor experience with you on June 27 as planned. We know we will have a grand reopening, but we also know this June will not be the right time for a celebratory gathering.

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. Until then, stay safe and healthy.
