Sherlock Holmes Museum, London

3.2
#29 of 250 in Museums in London
At Sherlock Holmes Museum, see the home where the famous fictional detective and his assistant Dr. Watson lived. The interior of the Georgian townhouse appears just as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle described it in his Victorian-era stories. Pose for a photo in Holmes's fireside armchair in the study overlooking Baker Street, view the detective's private belongings and papers in his bedroom, and check out the wax models of characters on the third floor. The museum's address is 221B Baker Street, just as it was in the books, but it's actually located between 237 and 241 on the street.

  • It is a creation of the Victorian apartment of Sherlock Holmes, with costumed staff and a store, on the street and number quoted in the novels. The curious thing is that it's all treated as if Sherlock Holmes had been real (not even the number 221b Baker Street was when Conan Doyle wrote the books). There was good effort to assemble the apartment with originiais objects, however the Victorian whole experience is very fast, small, and the price (paid 15 pounds) extremely high for the 15 minutes that you spend on the site. The most fanatical fans of detective can, however, enjoy it more, because there are many references to the different cases.

  • Listened matrix and went around four o'clock in the afternoon. Matrix it was made, was about 20 people. Buy a ticket in the shop and Japan Guide (one with solid proof) will. It has stood in a line. Entry limit. Takes no time to look narrower than I thought in you enter according to the guide around. It was Holmes business cards business cards are selling various souvenirs shop, shop was involuntarily, I came back.

  • Worth visiting if you are a fan. It is on the pricey side, though. And you will run out of things to see pretty quickly as it is small. But to experience what it might have been like to live in an Elizabethan flat, it's pretty cool. Also it's very busy.
  • The best example of living period costume I have come across! Absolutely everyone was in character! After giving the introduction, the butler was asked if Sherlock Holmes was real, and he kindly explained that the museum was there to help build the story. Brilliant experience and highly recommend!!
