Sherlock HolmesLikely to be one of 2014's most popular exhibitions, Sherlock Holmes at the Museum of London will be the largest exploration of the fictional detective in over 60 years. Drawing on the museum's Victorian and Edwardian collections, as well as material from across the globe and costumes and props from the recent BBC series, the exhibition will ask searching questions such as who is Sherlock Holmes and why does he still hold such fascination.
