Ramblings of a Techno-Viking

Virginia City, Nevada

Virginia City Nevada was a silver and gold mining town that is now has tourism as what it sells. There are many small museums, and lots of gift shops and saloons. The first Friday of the month admission to most of the museums is free.

The "Way it Was" museum has mining equipment from the area and the best overall history of the area. The firehouse museum has examples of horse-drawn fire-fighting engines and ladder trucks. The police museum has a large collection of badges from all over the country.

I didn't visit any of the museums when I was there. I was too busy photographing the approximately three million historical markers, and still didn't get them all.
