I took a few pictures inside the Museum of the Confederacy and Hotel Jefferson, I visited. They were not always well lighted. When I took pictures without a built-up flash, I found them blurred. I was so excited about meeting with Nat, lost luggage and new country and city that I... forgot to take a tripod to use longer exposure. Using a flash had some disadvantages as well.
Keep in mind that a built in (or even additional) flash on most cameras can only light up an area between 3 - 6 m in front of the camera (10 - 20 ft, depends on the flash and DIN of your film). My camera's shutter opens and has to stay open for up to several seconds for enough light to hit the film to make an image at night/bad light. The problem: most people cannot hold a camera perfectly still for more than a small fraction of a second - usually more than 1/30 or 1/45 s. Just notice here that larger camera you have, easier you can hold it.
So, if you want to take pictures at night (except objects up to a few meters in front of your camera) you must use a tripod, never mind how good (and expensive) is your camera.
It is not so easy to choose good tripod, look :-):

It's more my suggestion for city leaders than real warning tip. My improving nature, ask local authorities for more direction signs (there were few) and information tables (there were none or some very old) on tourist attractions (historical buildings, monuments etc.) for individual visitors walking around.
Hmm... maybe most visitors drive there from one parking lot to the next one or buy guided tour. Maybe Richmond is not that much touristy city yet. Maybe they prefer to spend public money for something different. Anyway, I do hope that local authorities will put more signs and info soon.
