It was interesting to see all the cranes of the world in one place. They are housed in a very natural looking setting.

Took my parents here when they were over for a visit. This place offers a close up view of some pretty spectacular cranes. Trails are well paved and there is a motorized cart (Rascal) for those who cannot walk far. Reasonably priced and decent gift store on site as well. Tour on your own or take a guided tour. The...

My Grandchildren 4 and 7 picked the foundation from tourist brochures after eating one day. They wanted to go. I was surprised for them to want to go. It was very nice and beautifully set in the cranes natural habitat. They have beautiful ponds with seating along the water. Being able to see the cranes eating and drinking hold the... More

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.
