DUE TO ONGOING BUDGET AND PERSONNEL REDUCTIONS, THE FORT SILL NATIONAL HISTORIC LANDMARK AND MUSEUM WILL NO LONGER BE ABLE TO PROVIDE SUPPORT FOR ANY NON-GOVERNMENTAL RESEARCH REQUESTS OR COLLECTIONS ACCESS UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. THIS IS FOR BOTH COLLECTIONS AND ARCHIVES.
Collections and archives access
The Fort Sill National Historic Landmark and Museum offers public access to its collections storage and archives on a limited basis. The Fort Sill National Historic Landmark and Museum considers research visit requests individually, with preference given to academic and public-benefit projects (i.e. scholars and researchers working on advanced degrees or material for publication). Due to staff workload and availability, we can accommodate a limited number of researchers. All requests for research visits must be submitted at least two months in advance through regular US mail. We cannot support same-day requests, nor can we accept research visit requests submitted via telephone or e-mail.
The Fort Sill National Historic Landmark and Museum can answer brief questions concerning Fort Sill history; however, due to staffing limitations, the staff cannot conduct in-depth research for the public. We do not have any genealogical information or personnel records - the best place to go for that information would be the National Archives or Carlisle Barracks. No e-mail or phone-in requests for information are accepted - No exceptions. All requests for information must be written and sent via regular US mail. Please use the Fort Sill National Historic Landmark and Museum Information Request form to request information.
Research requests and visits must have specific goals and be narrow in scope. The Fort Sill National Historic Landmark and Museum cannot support generic information requests or visits intended simply to browse our collections. For example, we cannot support such requests as "I want to know what you have on the Red River War". Situations may arise that can cause the disruption or cancellation of a planned visit to the Fort Sill National Historic Landmark and Museum with little or no notice. We cannot accept responsibility for any costs that may result from the cancellation or interruption of a research visit due to unforeseen circumstances. Please bear this in mind when planning a research visit.
Written requests for information or in-person research must be filled out on this Fort Sill National Historic Landmark and Museum Access Request form.
All research requests must be written and sent via regular U.S. mail to:
