The International Exhibition of Sherlock Holmes

Exhibition closed 8 October 2017 Powerhouse Museum Book Tickets

Elementary? Maybe for Sherlock Holmes, but how will you fare when you try to solve a captivating, original mystery in the tradition of the master detective? Find out for yourself in The International Exhibition of Sherlock Holmes at the Powerhouse Museum.

For the first time in Australia, be transported back to Sherlock Holmes’ Victorian London and crack the case by conducting your own experiments in this interactive exhibition that is perfect for the whole family.

Before taking on the challenge, enter Sherlock’s world and explore the study of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, doctor-turned-author and the man behind the legend. See original manuscripts and first editions, visit one of the world’s most accurate recreations of 221B Baker Street, the home of Sherlock Holmes and his trusty sidekick Watson.

Plus immerse yourself in the most comprehensive display of Sherlock pop culture items since his creation 127 years ago, including costumes, props and behind the scenes equipment from the hit CBS television show Elementary and the BBC’s Sherlock, as well as Warner Bros.’ recent Sherlock Holmes movies.

So whether you’re a Sherlockian fanatic, a mini sleuth, have a keen interest in science and history or just a fan of pop culture, an ear to the ground and an eye for observation are elementary in The International Exhibition of Sherlock Holmes.

Hurry along! The game’s afoot! Pre-book and save with Ticketek.


Visitors are advised that this exhibition contains human remains.


The International Exhibition of Sherlock Holmes was developed by Exhibits Development Group and Geoffrey M. Curley + Associates in collaboration with the Conan Doyle Estate Limited, the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, and the Museum of London
