We found this attraction to be very interesting. A large array of cranes. Well worth our time to tour.

I've been an avid birder since I was 11. I had heard about this place and always wanted to go there. Last May I got the chance. This is a very nice attraction. The cranes are fantastic. To get to see so many exotic birds in one spot is a joy to anyone who is into birding and the grandeur... More

I was very impressed that the International Crane Foundation has all 15 varieties of cranes that are left in the world. The displays are very nicely done, and all the cranes were out when we visited. The Siberian cranes were very noisy, a little surprised how they sound. Highly recommend coming to visit when you are in the Wisconsin Dells... More

I was so excited to learn about this place while doing research for our trip. I have followed the effort to bring back the Whooping Crane for years and have always been so supportive of their work. But to actually be at the place where it all began was inspiring. This is a treasure. We were able to see all... More

Beautiful setting of created wetlands. The impact of the whole ecosystem is very carefully explained. These birds are so regal- a joy to just sit and watch.

We had a great tour guide that took us through the grounds and explalined the different species of cranes and told us about their habitats, etc. This is the only place that you can actually see all 15 varieties of cranes in one place. There are some beautiful cranes here to watch in natural settings.

The ICF has birds representing all of the species of cranes found in the world. They do an outstanding job of breeding endangered species and releasing them into the wild. In addition to the beautiful viewing facilities, there are nature trials to hike. The area is a restored prairie so there is something for plant lovers to enjoy. A small... More

What a wonderful place to stop for a short time to learn about these beautiful birds. With special emphasis on the Whooping Crane (with only about 15 - 20 during the 1940's) , you are able to see the various species in one place. While not generally happy to see animals in enclosures, it is wonderful to see all of... More

What a wonderful place! Recommended to us by the manager at our campground, we would never have found this otherwise, and we are so happy we did. The cranes are so magnificent to see, the guide was knowledgeable and answered all our questions, and the history and purpose of the foundation is heartwarming. We forget about all the habitats that... More
