Never been to the Sherlock Holmes museum before, but now the kids have become fans of Sir Arthur and his famous personage, so I decided to go and have it over with.
2,5 hours in the sad, boring queue which was very slow - and 10 minutes inside the apartment, looking at dusty objects of the 19th century English memorabilia and a few ridiculous life size dolls representing unfortunate dead and alive characters from the stories. The only happy moment was the realisation that you could actually sit in the Holmes's armchair and take a picture.
If I knew - I would have only gone to the souvenir shop next door - it retains the atmosphere, has fun items on sale and does not require any waiting in the queue. Besides, you can take a picture in the famous hat in front of the apartment for free and without waiting.
If there is no queue - well, may be then would I recommend to buy a ticket and go inside.
