Unique habitats created for cranes from all over the planet. Excellent, user-friendly, wheelchair accessible walking paths to each out door exhibit. Good, brief documentation about each species PLUS clear explanations of the value of cranes to our global habitats. Much loved species are well cared for. Excellent gift shop with wide assortment of gifts, memorabilia, literature, art, and so much more. Very courteous staff. Wish we lived locally so we could visit it more often.

I have disbaled daughter, my wife struggles and our guest is 85 years old. My daughter always complains that nature is not ADA complaint and took it back visting the facility. Everyone got around with the help of the availbility of carts. They even have charging stations for your EV. Now the birds go see for yourself. I wish they had tours of the breeding/offsite areas. I would pay.

Most of us never see a crane, and this is an opportunity to see a variety of these stunning creatures while they still exist on Earth.

8 of us were biking at Sauk City, 20 minutes away, and came here for the afternoon. 2 of us were members so could bring in 3 guests. The new people really liked the crane exhibits. Our first stop the crane pair gave us a raucous squawking welcome! Beautiful cranes to see in their new habitats. Center staff are very helpful in answering questions whenever we saw them on the path. Beautiful gift shop!

Beautiful new facility which allows you to see all 15 different types of crane species. They take great pride in their efforts to keep the cranes from becoming extinct. I was amazed at all the efforts that go into taking care of these beautiful birds. I would have never gone here if my wife had not picked it and I'm glad she did it was an excellent experience. A beautiful natural habitat for the cranes has been constructed over a lot of beautiful natural area. Take the time to visit. It is also handicap and wheelchair accessible
