What people are saying:

There are two parts to this museum - the shop and the tour itself. The shop has everything Sherlock related at not too bad prices for souvenirs either. From the shop you can buy your tickets to enter Sherlock Holmes' house. Now if you weren't sure if Sherlock Holmes is real or not, then this will definitely convince you (I was starting to doubt myself!). There is every little detail that you could possible imagine Sherlock to have; incredibly detailed. Even hidden away in the corner is Sherlock's violin. You can access all the floors right up to the attic, whilst exploring Sherlock and Watson's adventures. The nicest touch I find is the blue plaque they have on the building that says "Sherlock Holmes: Consulting Detective".

    So so

    This museum was OK. I had read the reviews and saw it was ‘hidden gem’ - I had also seen it on a kids TV programme so was quite excited. It was quite small. It was interesting, but would have liked m...

    Waste of money

    You would be lucky to be in there for 10 mins at £50 for a family of 4! Total waste of money and time!! Save your money!!!!

Introduction

Adding to the authenticity of the experience, the layout and contents of the museum are based on the important scenes and things mentioned in the mysteries.
