Sherlock Holmes Museum

Having read the novels as a kid and having been obsessed with being a detective for a large part of my childhood, the Sherlock Holmes
Museum in London was just something I couldn’t miss when I visited London again this summer. I hit up the museum on Baker St with my younger sister on a hot sunny day. We had no idea we had to queue up for over an hour to get in. There were kids, young of age, adults with large cameras hanging around their necks, but also a lot of teenagers. I guess the museum’s popularity has grown over the years with Benedict Cumberbatch’s (in)famous portrayal of the ‘consulting detective’. Take a walk with me maybe?

Before entering the museum, you have to get a ticket in the museum gift shop. How convenient.

In the living room, we got to try on the deerstalker hat, pipe and magnifying glass. There was an Asian family holding up the line for ages. I’m Asian, I know how Asian parents can be. This was an Asian father trying to get all of his kids and wife separately on a picture with all of the items. It got me thinking about how many people my parents must have annoyed taking us with them everywhere they went.

  • Oh wow that’s amazing. My mum is a huuuge Sherlock Holmes fan and I’d love to take her to this exhibition. Unfortunately, London isn’t really around the corner 🙁
