Attending the October 13 press preview for “The International Exhibition of Sherlock Holmes” were Members of The Sound of the Baskervilles—Western Washington’s scion society of The Baker Street Irregulars.
At this traveling exhibition designed for all ages and interests, guests learned how Sherlock Holmes used seemingly trivial observations of clues others missed to solve some of his era’s most mysterious crimes. Noted the Exhibition’s producer, to whom we spoke, “His practices and techniques changed the way police work was conducted and remain in practice today. This morning you will be transported into Holmes’ London to solve a crime in a world filled with innovation and experimentation. You’ll see original manuscripts and period artifacts, investigative tools influenced and used by Sherlock Holmes and, hopefully, participate in an interactive crime-solving adventure.” And we did!
The Exhibition, which completed its U.S. run in Seattle and was next headed to Australia, ran from October 15, 2016 through January 8, 2017 at The Pacific Science Center at Seattle Center.
