3.3/5 based on 2,000+ reviews on the web
At The 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.

  • I had one of the most beautiful visits in London. It's a very interesting and intriguing place. You have to visit it at least once in a lifetime 
  • For 15 pounds entry, this is expensive considering the exhibition took less than 15 minutes to look through. It is a small museum, three storeys and quite narrow. The exhibits consisted of many object...  read more »
  • I'm a big Sherlock Holmes fan and knew I at least wanted to walk past 221b while in London with my husband. I actually really enjoyed looking around the gift shop and was afraid I'd regret it if I did...  read more »
  • A unic place for sherlock lovers .. the decore makes you feel that u travelled to the vectorian era
  • WAY too expensive for what it's worth. For the price I expected so much more than merely walking around a cramped Victorian home for 20 minutes. The staff is friendly, the decor makes you truly feel like you're in the Victorian era, and the props memorialize key characters from the books, but in the end I felt ripped off. Maybe if it had clues to find or something interactive or a much more reasonable admission, I would have enjoyed this.
  • dan and phil caught a rattata here
  • I gave it a 4 because the staff is amazing. They are very helpfull and fun. The museum itself is just a few floors of memorabilia. I was in and out in 10 minutes (no pun intended). Not really worth 15£ in my book. Also be sure to buy a ticket BEFORE you queue up! Also, the to visit at nonstandard times... like earlier in the morning.
  • Lovely little museum. We went on Sunday 17th April 2016, roughly around 10'ish. We didn't have to que and could move around inside easily. We really enjoyed the museum, and the gift shop. Well worth a visit, even if just going to the gift shop.
