A few blocks away from Madame Tussauds in London is one of the world’s most famous addresses in literature, specifically the detective genre. Arthur Conan Doyle created Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John H. Watson and so home to 221b Baker Street. That’s where today pays tribute to the legendary detective through the museum that bears his name. Let’s play a while to be him and discover the magnificent Museum of Sherlock Holmes. It is well worth the visit to experience this museum and stay at a hotel in London.
Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson lived in this Victorian house that is now protected as an architectural and cultural heritage. The museum invites us to explore the life of the famous detective in an environment that has been restored exactly following the descriptions of the stories published.
The first floor is the well-known study, the sets of many films on the publication of Arthur Conan Doyle. Visitors can sit in the chair in front of the researcher’s home, but please do not forget to bring your pipes and get the players to feel perfect pose for a while. In the bedroom, the study continued, we will see all kinds of personal items such as glasses, pipes, hats, violin, chemistry equipment, among others.
Doctor Watson’s bedroom is on the second floor. It has a variety of private papers belonging to the published cases and especially a diary with notes and excerpts from the famous Adventure manuscripts of “The Hound of the Baskervilles.” The third floor is made of wax figures and there before us, still as a statue, the host of this museum: Sherlock Holmes.
In an atmosphere of mystery, this museum invites us to remember those we read detective stories of teens and get the spirit of detectives in all of us.
