The Sherlock Holmes Museum is a fascinating private museum located in an old boarding house on 221b Baker Street and dedicated to the extremely popular fictional detective of Sherlock Holmes and his friend Doctor John H. Watson. The museum recreates the fictional home of Sherlock Holmes as it is described in the popular series of stories.

In addition to recreating the fictional Victorian era 221b Baker Street residence of Sherlock Holmes, the museum contains rooms exhibiting wax models arranged to illustrate scenes from the stories. There is a good selection of antiques and gifts available for purchase from the Museum's souvenir shop.

The Sherlock Holmes Museum is open daily from 9:30 am to 6 pm except on Christmas. As this is a private museum there is a small admission charge.

Sherlock Holmes Museum is located within a short walk of the Wallace Collection so you may want to consider visiting it also while in the area.

Rated 4.2 out of 5The Sherlock Holmes Museum Star Rating

5 Star Rating I visited the museum on a weekday around 5 pm and there was no line to get in, which was great! The wait time was about 10 minutes. Right outside the entrance, they have a Sherlock hat and a pipe that one can use as props to take pics. I thought this was amazing as buying a similar hat inside the museum store is costly. Once we went in, we got a tour of the floor that has most of the setup and it was narrated well to create the feel of the book/movie/series, however you relate to the character. There are also a couple of floors that are open for people to walk and see at their own pace. I really liked the visit and would recommend going if you are a fan.

4 Star Rating Really cute, pretty touristy. The shop has some nice items if you can find them. There is also a tasty coffee shop down the road that's worth the walk.

4 Star Rating If you're a Sherlock Holmes fan, you're going to enjoy this place. Tickets are bought in a (very well stocked) gift shop. Take into account 15 or so minutes of waiting in line to enter the museum. Sightseeing in the museum itself takes less than half an hour. You get to see Sherlock's living room, his bedroom, Watson's bedroom, Mrs. Hudson's room, a Victorian bathroom and an exhibition of wax figures representing different Sherlock Holmes stories.

5 Star Rating An absolute delight for fans of Sherlock Holmes! First floor is a pub - with a super Old London vibe. Wood, brass, glass all shining and polished. Standard English fare is offered, and served in generous portions to tourists and local business people as well. As beautiful as the pub is, the real treat is waiting upstairs for you. A room there is on display that matches all descriptions of the Baker Street apt, the denizen of Holmes and his trusty biographer, Dr. Watson. Every detail has apparently been replicated.
