Sherlock Holmes at the Museum of London

From to

Curator and Victorian expert, Alex Werner, inspects an 1872 painting of Westminster by John Anderson


The Museum of London studies the world’s greatest detective with Sherlock Holmes Under the Microscope. The exhibition delves into the mind of the genius sleuth, created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. One of the most famous figures in fiction, this is a chance to find out what made the character tick. 

With a particular emphasis on Holmes' relationship with London, visitors can dissect the traits that define the detective and learn more about his literary beginnings more than 125 years ago. Reimagined by generation after generation, it looks as if Holmes will forever be stalking the streets of the capital to solve mysteries. 

The first major exhibition devoted to Holmes in more than 60 years, this is a chance to look beyond the familiar deerstalker, pipe and cape and discover the complex character beneath. The exhibition is curated by Alex Werner, an expert on Victorian London, who also heads the Museum of London’s history team.
