Observe, test and solve the crime at The International Exhibition of Sherlock Holmes at Houston Museum of Natural Science. This special exhibit is now open!
Learn how Sherlock Holmes, a scientific expert ahead of his time, used seemingly trivial observations of clues others missed to solve some of his era’s most puzzling mysteries. His practices and techniques, created in the mind of doctor-turned-author Conan Doyle, encouraged a change in the way police work was conducted, and remains in practice today.
This exhibit features original manuscripts and period artifacts, investigative tools influenced and used by Sherlock Holmes... and a whole bunch of interactive crime-solving opportunities.
This exhibit is interactive like the Secret Agent activity at the Children's Museum... but this one has more tests and a whole lot less hiking around the museum.
At the Sherlock Holmes exhibit, you go from station to station and conduct tests and record the findings in the notebook. There are a lot of stations and activities, so it is best for kids that can read or stop to listen as you read.
