Above: Sherlock’s Footprint Maker
It’s elementary that fans of all things Sherlock Holmes will want to see the International Exhibition of Sherlock Holmes, on at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science from 23 October, 2015 to 31 January, 2016.
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle introduced Sherlock Holmes over a century ago, with the super sleuth quickly becoming a literary sensation. Sherlock’s methods of observation, testing, and deduction – created from Conan Doyle’s scientifically trained mind – greatly influenced the development of practices and techniques for solving both fictional and real mysteries, many of which are still used today. Sherlock was an expert ahead of his time as his keen observations, missed by others, helped him solve crimes.
The exhibition features detailed stage sets, elaborate Victorian-style exhibits and interactive evidence stations that appeal to dedicated Sherlock enthusiasts, the merely curious and families with older children who would enjoy playing detective. See props and costumes from the film Sherlock Holmes and the television shows Elementary and Sherlock.
The exhibition allows guests to experience first-hand the early days when Conan Doyle’s inspiration was coming to life, and the age of modern forensics and CSI was dawning. International Exhibition of Sherlock Holmes is on at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science from 23 October, 2015 to 31 January, 2016.
