Railroad Gun refurbishmentWe are currently overseeing the refurbishment of our M1895 12" M1918 Railroad gun! The only one in North America, this project is well overdue. The current month-long process will ensure the integrity of this rare Army artifact for years to come.   GALLERY



The mission of the US Army Ordnance Training and Heritage Center is to collect, preserve, exhibit, and interpret historically significant property that relates to the history of the US Army Ordnance Corps, and the evolution and development of American military ordnance materiel from the Colonial Period in American history to the present. In fulfilling this mission, the Ordnance Training and Heritage Center assists in research and development of military ordnance, and supports military training and education through exhibits and interpretation of historical artifacts and instruction to the military and civilian communities.



Our service to the U.S. Army Ordnance Corps is to train Soldiers; educate through exhibits; answer queries from researchers in a thorough and professional manner and support the Ordnance School with graphics and displays. In order to fulfill our functions while without a dedicated museum building we have gotten creative! We have extensive display cases throughout the Ordnance campus to support Soldier training and education. The temporary exhibit at the Quartermaster Museum further supports that mission as it focuses on the importance of captured enemy material as a way to gather ordnance intelligence.
