Field Artillery Museum
United States Army
Opened June 2, 2009, the U.S. Army Artillery Museum tells the story of Artillery from 1775 to the present with over 70 guns and artillery pieces and numerous other artifacts from head gear and ammo to small arms and uniforms.
Our collection is housed in three galleries. The Central Gallery features the four principle components of Artillery: Guns, Rockets, Forward Observation, and Fire Direction Control. The South Gallery history is from the 1700s to the 1900s. The North Gallery starts with World War I and continues to the present day Artillery, which includes a prototype of the M777 Howitzer.
Our collection includes a representation of uniforms from each era. We have added many new pieces and exhibits to pique the interest of any history or artillery buff.
The Museum offers Outreach programs offsite on a variety of military subjects including Cannon firing demonstrations and American Revolution, Civil War and World War II living history presentations. Talks tailored to your requirements are also available. Call the Museum at (580) 442-1819 for more information.
The cannon firing demonstrations include a brief introduction of Civil War artillery ammo and gun crew procedures. The demonstrations are held the second Saturday, monthly, on the Fort Sill Post Quadrangle at 10, 11 and 12 o’clock. Please call the Museum to verify the demonstrations for that weekend before planning your trip.
The U.S. Army Artillery Museum has a volunteer program that enlists help from fans who want to be involved with the museum. Some of our volunteers help prepare, research and assist to create and maintain exhibits; some escort tour groups; some help in other ways to include cleaning in the exhibit galleries and maintaining the shop area
One of the museum’s most unique groups of volunteers, the Fort Sill Gun Detachment, contributes their time and skills interpreting nineteenth-century artillery history. Both civilian and military personnel are represented on the gun crew including officers, enlisted men, teachers and others.
