A great collection of artifacts relating to the history of the field artillery and Fort Sill. Several outside exhibits display artillery pieces from around the world and from different wars.

Enthralling, interesting and educational. I would recommend this to anyone from teens to the elderly. People working at the attraction are very helpful and informative. Museums are wonderful. Get the map and visit Geronimo's grave. It's so interesting.

The historic landmark is the launch point for entering the "old post". This is an old site that incorporates the Old Post Museum and Stockade. You need to see the Stockade to see Geromino's cell and the Custer Last Stand mural. Let the kids wander...More
