Nikkor 16-35 with VR versus Nikkor 18-35 without VR: How crucial is VR?

I am trying to decide which of the two (16-35 vs. 18-35) wide angle Nikkor lenses I should get. I have a D610 and intend to use the lens for daylight and night landscapes,  but also for inside shots in museums, churches, etc. which tend to be rather dimly lt. How crucial is VR in a wide angle lens to prevent shaken pictures? I would appreciate any suggestions and comments!
