Perot Museum presents The International Exhibition of Sherlock Holmes
The International Exhibition of Sherlock Holmes delves into the world of one of the most beloved and recognizable figures in literature and popular culture. In this hands-on exhibition, visitors will learn firsthand how Sherlock Holmes, a scientific expert ahead of his time, used seemingly trivial observations of clues others missed to solve some of literature’s most mysterious crimes.
The fictional detective’s practices and techniques, created in the mind of doctor-turned-author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, revolutionized forensic science and remain relevant in modern-day crime investigations. Guests will be transported into Victorian London to collect clues and solve a crime using the same interactive methods and investigative tools employed by Holmes more than a century ago.
The bilingual exhibition also includes a dazzling array of original manuscripts, publications, period artifacts, and film and television props and costumes.
Admission to The International Exhibition of Sherlock Holmes requires a surcharge for members and non-members.
