The Sparks Museum & Cultural Center presents Senior Day on Saturday, May 13 with extended hours from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Seniors 65 and older enjoy free admission to the museum all day, and a free historic walking tour downtown starting at 11 a.m.

Learn about the history of the rail city with a guided walking tour of Victorian Square and Downtown Sparks. This interactive tour is designed to show how this area has transformed itself from a railroad hub, to a vibrant commercial district, to a rundown urban area and finally to a successful redevelopment area that has changed the image and future of the city. The tour includes 17 buildings and sites that have played an important role in the history and development of Sparks and Nevada. Walks generally last from 1 ½ to 2 hours. No dogs please. Tour guide: Scott Carey.
