The Sherlock Holmes Museum

London, England
4.6 / 9
House-museum of the popular detective on Baker Street 221b. It was here, designed by writer Arthur Conan Doyle, that Sherlock Holmes and his assistant, Dr. Watson, rented rooms. The building was bought by a society of admirers of this literary work. The museum opened relatively recently - in 1990. The atmosphere in the rooms is recreated, exactly in accordance with the author's description of A.K. Doyle.
