The Sherlock Holmes Museum

Elementary my dear Watson.

Going through the streets of the old part of London, you're bound to have the feeling that time has stopped as you see yourself surrounded by perfectly conserved Victorian facades. Many of the shops maintain that 19th century aesthetic which characterize London. Well, if you are around the neighbourhood of Baker Street and you approach number 221, you'll find one of the enjoyable attractions in the city, which will take you back to these times. We're talking about a small and curious museum which is dedicated to the most famous detective in history, and one of the icons who has enriched English literature. Created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle in 1887, Sherlock Holmes and his colleague Watson are the pinnacle of mystery novels, having taught and entertained millions of people. This museum was founded in 1990 and according to the descriptions in the books; it is located at the same number of the street where the character used to live. This museum is very special as the house has been meticulously reproduced and based on the stories. If you're a fan of the novels, you'll see that the slightest detail has been put into place, just as the author had described, and you'll find some of his most famous or curious objects here, such as official documents which confirm the solution of his cases.
