Fort Sill National Historic Landmark and Museum
Exhibit Gallery Closing
The Warrior's Journey Exhibit Gallery will close to the public starting April 1, 2018 for a major renovation. New stories will be told, new objects will be added and the layout will be much different. We will notify everyone when it reopens. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Fort Sill Gate Access
In the past, adults could gain entry to Fort Sill by showing any government-issued I.D. card (driver’s license, tribal membership, V.A. identification, etc.). After the attacks of 9/11, the Department of Defense (DoD) passed more restrictive rules for military bases worldwide, but the Army has been operating with an exemption to that rule until recently.
The DoD guidelines require that everyone entering a military installation have a nationwide background check. With the lifting of the exemption, Fort Sill is implementing an installation access policy in accordance with Fort Sill Memo 190-13 that meets that background check requirement and will begin issuing photographic pass cards for all visitors and open a Visitors Control Center (VCC) (located just south of Bentley Gate on Sheridan Road) to manage the program.
For more information, please go to the Visitor Control Center Website.
IMPORTANT - Access and Information Request Information
Due to the ongoing budget cuts / staff loss, many things that were done in the past have been either suspended or eliminated. Please see the list below:
1. No external, non-governmental research requests or collections access will be accepted. We understand that there are a lot of people who wish to have information from our Archives or researchers who would like access to the Archives or Collections but we do not have the staff to assist with the requests. Thank you for your understanding.
2. No non-Soldier guided tours will done by staff due to the lack of staff available. One of the principal missions of the museum is Soldier education and we will continue to provide the support to all Soldier tours. All tours by non-Soldier groups will be self-guided. We apologize for this and thank you for your understanding.
3. Exhibit development suspended. Only repair and maintenance performed. We will try to do some updates to exhibits as money, time and staff allow.
If you have any questions regarding what services we can support, please call (580) 442-5123.
