“Fun for Sherlock Fans!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2014

Great little museum at 221b Baker Street! There are four floors to explore; each room full of memorabilia and paraphernalia mentioned in Sherlock's adventures. There is a large souvenir shop on the ground floor with novelty items only available to Sherlock Museum visitors.

“Stuffed with stuff!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2014

Dedicated almost entirely to the novels (though the BBC show's DVDs are for sale in the store) the museum (actually NOT at 221b technically, but close enough!) is an old building that has been designed to look like the apartment where Holmes and Watson lived and worked. Fun items and dead bodies lead you on a journey through their world. A must see for his fans, but be prepared to stand in line and be a little bit cramped inside. Note that there is no access other than the narrow staircase.

“GREAT GIFT SHOP”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2014

We skipped touring the museum and just toured the charming gift shop. Lots of unique items here. Also, took fun pictures of the exterior with the Bobby. If you don't have time for the museum, at least stop by and check out the place.

“Nice surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014 via mobile

We didn't expect too much of this museum, but it delievered an experience better than we thought it was possible, given the size of the museum. It has a little bit too much 'information' in each room, but given time you can sort out some nice stuff among all the repplicas and other things. Recommend too the shop next door, since it has some nice souveniers

“He Lives!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014

This was a fun and inexpensive attraction. It was short and sweet, but if you are a true Sherlock Holmes fan you have to take the time to visit. I picked up several souvenirs in the gift shop too.
