Description: The Sparks Museum will be offering FREE ADMISSION to Nevada Residents on Friday, October 25th in honor of Nevada Day.  This is your opportunity to check out “Sparks Best Kept Secret;”  a truly local museum representing everything that makes Nevada great! The museum is community driven and completely donation funded and volunteer operated.   Visitors are often surprised by the quality and quantity of information in the 4000 Square feet of exhibits focusing on the Sparks and the Truckee Meadows.  The Changing Gallery and the Cultural Center is currently featuring a special Italian Heritage Exhibit.  The Western Folklife Center in Elko generously loaned select pieces of artwork and photographs, from their Italian Buckaroos collection, for this one of a kind exhibit in Sparks. This unique display covers a broad spectrum of topics ranging from Reno’s Little Italy neighborhoods to the early settlers and the Buckaroo and ranching lifestyle they brought with them.  A compilation of artifacts, photographs and archives have been shared by the local community giving one a glimpse at Italian traditions and culture.  The Sparks Museum & Cultural Center is located at 814 Victorian Avenue, Sparks. Just off I-80 on the corner or Pyramid Way and Victorian Avenue.
