Carry a monopod, you can always claim it's a hiking stick. Or get one of these.
I recently visited The Great Britain, Brunel's iron steamship, and used a monopod for almost every interior shot because I was using available light and slow speeds . No one said anything and it wasn't too much of a chore to collapse the leg after each shot.
You can see the results it is possible to get using a monopod in the attached pictures (note these are just some neg scans I quickly ran off for this post).
