London exhibition to explore elementary appeal of Sherlock Holmes

LONDON  — The Museum of London is turning its magnifying glass to the most famous Londoner who never lived — Sherlock Holmes.

The museum today announced an exhibition devoted entirely to the detective, from Arthur Conan Doyle’s hand-written manuscripts to the coat worn by Benedict Cumberbatch in the BBC series “Sherlock.”

It’s the first time the museum devoted to London’s history has held a show about a fictional character. But Holmes is an almost unique blend of fiction and fact who has kept his hold on the public imagination for more than a century.

Alex Werner, the exhibition’s curator says “this is the moment to say: he is one of London’s icons. He helped make London what it is.”

The exhibition opens Oct. 17 and runs to April 12, 2015.
