AAA Editor Notes
U.S. Army Field Artillery Museum is at 238 Randolph Rd.; visitors must stop at the Visitor Control Center, 6701 Sheridan Rd., jct. Sheridan Rd. and US 62 to present identification and obtain a pass to enter Fort Sill. On the grounds of Fort Sill National Historic Landmark and Museum, the museum's large collection of artillery pieces, uniforms, small arms and equipment relates the history of American artillery from 1775 to the present. Exhibits trace the development of artillery from cannons that could be broken down and carried on mules to the latest technology that uses computers for aiming.
The newly completed Artillery Park next to the museum contains more than 80 artillery weapons and vehicles from World War I to the present in an outdoor exhibit. Included are “Atomic Annie,” the 280-millimeter cannon that fired the first atomic artillery round, U.S. artillery, rockets and missiles and captured German, Italian, Japanese, Soviet and Iraqi artillery.
