Air Defense Artillery Museum Expands Hours

Posted: Updated:

FORT SILL, Okla. (AP) - The Air Defense Artillery Museum at Fort Sill has expanded its hours and is now open four days a week.

Curator Jonathan Bernstein says it has been three years since the museum moved from Fort Bliss, Texas. Since he took the job in April, he's tried to open its doors at least once a week. Now, the museum is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday through Friday.

The museum is being temporarily housed an historic hangar built at Henry Post Army Airfield in 1932.

The mission of the museum is to preserve the history of the Army and the Air Defense Artillery branch.

A permanent site for the museum is being developed at Fort Sill.

Group tours are available.
