A great historical location that one should highly consider visiting
Haven't visited Fort Sill in years and have things ever changed for the better!

First, one need to stop at the Visitor Center on Sheridan Road prior to entering the base. You need to fill out a form, they do a quick security check on you, and then (if you pass) take your picture and give a pass to the base. We asked for a week's pass and got a month-long one.

Once in the base, there are so many things to see that one cannot take it all in in one day. The new museum (well, new to me) was closed due to the COVID-19 restrictions.

Adjacent and around that was "Artillery Park". This is an area with many canons, tanks, missiles and descriptive boards. This area was totally unfamiliar to me since my visiting so many times in 1978-1983, when stationed at Altus Air Force Base, and again when I visited in 2004. Seems that "Artillery Park" and this new museum were created in 2010 and did they ever do a nice job. We spent about two hours at "Constitution Park" and "Artillery Park".

We next went up the hill to the Quadrangle, where there are many historic buildings surrounding it.

After this location, we went to the northeast section of the base and visited the Apache cemetery. This is where Geronimo's grave site is at, although many Apache Indians (and even the guard at the Visitor Center) tell that his body was removed just days after being buried and taken by tribes members back to his homeland of Arizona and re-buried in a mountain. Regardless, it was interesting to see the grave site, which has been damaged. One thing to note is that the base finally put up decent directions to Apache cemetery so one doesn't take a wrong turn and get lost. Years ago, we found ourselves in what we considered an artillery range and still joke about that to this day.

Next was getting back to the main base area and visiting the Post Cemetery. There is a section of this cemetery where many Indians are buried. This includes Chief Quanah Parker, his mother Cynthia Ann Parker (a white woman captured by the Comanches as a child), and his sister Prairie Flower, who died as a child.

We were done with Fort Sill doing the things above on our first day on the base.

A couple of days later we returned and visited Medicine Bluffs and Medicine Creek. The Bluffs requires one to go up a gravel road and then into a rather nasty drive that has many rocks protruding from the ground. Once there though, the views were spectacular. Medicine Bluffs was and is sacred to Indians/Native Americans and holds much history.

We went back to a place near the Quadrangle tried following the map to find the marker where Geronimo had died. There was the post hospital at this location, which has been torn down, but there is a marker there. We encountered roads behind buildings that were one way and not the way we wanted to go. We had to get back out on the street and try to find another way to that marker. We finally did and it would be nice to have better directions to get there.

The things mentioned here are some of the highlights to Fort Sill. There is much history on this base, one that was built in 1869, and it could take many days to enjoy all of what is available - especially when the museum reopens some day.

Very highly recommended place to stop and allow enough time to take it all in.

Fort Sill is an amazing base. The outside US army Artillery park is amazing. Fort Sill has been an active Army Post since the late 1800!

Easy to spend the whole day

To visit here, you need to first go to the Fort Sill visitor center with your ID to get a day pass. Apparently there’s a golf course and bowling alley because people were coming to play there. The museums are free, and there’s 2 museum areas. My kids loved seeing how there is an entire city inside those guarded walls. There’s a Pizza Hut, Burger King, basketball court, gas station, etc. Behind the buildings opposite the gift shop (which wasn’t open), there’s a nice playground. There’s a large lawn for playing/relaxing. We could have spent the entire day.

Great military museum!
Great place to see all kinds of military vehicles, guns, missiles etc. Check out the original "Atomic Annie" cannon that fired the live nuclear shot.

The entrance is free, but you need to go to the visitor center and show your id and fill out a form to get a pass. Took us about extra 15 mins, so very reasonable.

non per Fort Sill
secondo me non merita Fort Sill in se per se in particolare perchè essendo una base militare devi passare una mezz' ora a farti fare il permesso, mentre merita sicuramente andare a vedere la tomba di Geronimo, della quale non interessa niente ad alcuno, e per la quale nisogna farsi dare informazioni dettagliate

Nice walk around
A nice level side walk path to walk that weaves in & out among all the artillery guns that were in use throughout the ages. There are nice cement benches to sit scattered through the exhibits. My husband really enjoyed it. I know my great nephews would really have loved it also.

Pretty cool, even on hot Oklahoma summer day. Bring water, and be careful not to touch the hot surfaces.
