Flashback Friday: Free Museum Days

vc flashbackfriday today

This is your chance to experience all of the Comstock history in Virginia City for free! All Virginia City museums have free admission* on the first Friday of the month from May through October, excluding July. Hours are based on museums regular business hours.

Stop by the Visitors Center to pick up a map. At each museum you visit, get your map stamped. When you've visited all 17 museums, bring your completed map back to the Visitors Center for an 8x10 framed historic photo of Virginia City. 




As you plan your visit, here are some things to keep in mind:

1. The pass is good for any day, however for FREE admission it is valid only on the first Friday of each month, April through October, excluding July.
2. You don't have to complete your pass in one day to receive the collectable historic photo. Take your time and enjoy the museums and exhibits.
3. It's not a race. We encourage you to take your time and explore our many historic places.
4. Several of the attractions have specific docent-lead tour times, so plan accordingly.
5. Keep your pass and return any time before October 3 to receive your free gift. If you visit during a day that is not a Flashback Friday, the museums will stamp your card upon paid admission.
6. Many of our museums rely on donations, which are greatly appreciated.


Participating Museums include:
