The Sherlock Holmes Museum, London
(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.

  • First of all, an adult ticket is £15. In my opinion, it is slightly overpriced. The museum has four flours, modelled after a typical Victorian residence. The exhibition rooms were quite small and hone...  more »
  • Leaving the Metro station is Baker Street, and Holmes images. Bent flaps as soon to 221B Baker Street. Small hotel for a long line of visitors waiting to get columns. In the workshop of width ago or buy souvenirs. The only entrance. Sharrokian is recommended even for non-fans want.

  • Well worth a visit for the more experienced. For the rest, just one step downstairs to buy some souvenirs looks great! From time to time, there are also temporary exhibitions elsewhere in London, such as the Museum of London.
  • Great place to meet your childhood idol (if you're a fan). It's amazing to see how people and things in novel come to life.
  • Quite interesting but a total rip of for £15 admission charge for visit that lasted only 15mins tops (visited ancient site of Delphi for unlimited time for only 12Euro). Too many shoved through at once, made seeing exhibits difficult as rooms are very small and most of the other visitors just seemed to want selfies. They weren't really interested in reading about the exhibits , just went into each room , photo, move on, photo. Clearly their motivation was just to take a photo to show they'd been there. That's fine but not when they tut and sigh at those genuinely interested in the exhibits in the rooms who dared to move in front of their shot. Personally I just ignored their protests, said I was there to look at the rooms, not to stand back and watch people taking photos. If there were fewer allowed through at a time this would be less of a problem but even then £15 would still be poor value. Would not recommend to others.
  • Neat little museum and giftshop. If you are a big fan of Sherlock Holmes then you will find this interesting. There is also a statue of Sherlock just up the road about a block. If you have little ones they will let you skip the queue.
  • Very small museum. As for me the first floor (2 small rooms) was interesting. Expected more
