Elementary, my dear Colorado!


Last Friday, the International Exhibition of Sherlock Holmes opened at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. This exciting new exhibition showcases the world and connotation of the great Sherlock Holmes. An homage to both Sherlock and his creator, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, this show balances the literary world of Sherlock with the concrete career and life of Doyle. 

On the backdrop of a curated bustling Victorian environment, the exhibition features the manuscripts, illustrations, letters, and medical specimans that inspired Doyle. In addition to artifacts and the biography of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, visitors may also acquaint themselves with the inner workings of Sherlock's deductive reasoning powers. With guiding historical enactors, you too can visit 221B Baker Street, explore a crime scene, and help Sherlock solve a mystery.

As Sherlock once acknowledged to his renowned partner, "You know my methods, Watson." If you are not as familiar with Sherlock's methods, go see this mysterious new exhibition at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. The show runs from October 23rd - January 31st. 

Don't let red herrings get in the way!
