Headquarters’ Grand Opening May 1, 2021

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 metal artist Robert Bergman of Postville Blacksmith Shop.

We are rescheduling our grand opening celebration to May 1, 2021.

We are very excited about our renovation, but we need to place the safety of our guests above opening our gates,” explained Chief Operating Officer Kim Smith. “Like many attractions, we realize we needed to postpone our grand opening to a future date when large groups can safely gather.”

We look forward to welcoming you back on our site when it’s safe to do so. View our Facebook album for photos of the renovation.

Although we also found it necessary to cancel our Evening with the Cranes event on Saturday, September 19, due to COVID-19, we offerred a new virtual celebration, Let’s Whoop It Up!, on Saturday, July 23. Click here to view the event recording!
