It's the best place in the world. I love Sherlock Holmes and I love this museum The Sherlock Holmes Museum on Baker Street is very interesting and atmospheric, especially, I think, will be liked by teenagers of 9-13 years old who adore these detective stories and films about Sherlock. You can touch everything, twist it in your hands, take a picture, the visit time is unlimited, despite the fact that there is a queue at the entrance. I spent half a day there, because there are many interesting details and an unforgettable atmosphere .. I love Sherlock, so I often visit this place.

Nice place. Staff was friendly and very helpful. Was dreading the que as I have autism but after speaking to the manager he helped out. Worth a visit. Some of the props could do with fixing up but all round nice visit 👍🏻

A quite small museum, but adorable. I really wish they would have had more info like the introduction. Think I only spent about 15 minutes in there. The highlight of this exerience was for sure the extremely nice and fun doorman! One of these stars is dedicated to him :D

Cool place to go even if you are not an enthusiast. There will be a wait so have someone get in line and another go get tickets in the gift store. The gift shop has some neat stuff as well. The street where the TV show was filmed is a few blocks away and worth the walk for fans.

I love the idea of this place. The actors work hard to make it realistic and exciting. Some of the props and costumes have seen better days but if you like Sherlock Holmes then it's worth visiting. The queues can get very long so think about this and check for less busy times
