Museum of London Exhibition

Oh, you lucky people on that side of the pond!  This looks wonderful:

http://www.museumoflondon.org.uk/london-wall/whats-on/exhibitions-displays/sherlock-holmes

Sherlock Holmes: The Man Who Never Lived And Will Never Die.  Now on display until April.  Not only tons of Doyle stuff, but set up to be like Victorian London as well. 
"Going beyond film and fiction, visitors to the museum will be transported to the real Victorian London – the backdrop for many of Conan Doyle’s stories. Through early film, photography, paintings and original artefacts, the exhibition will recreate the atmosphere of Sherlock’s London, with visitors able to envisage the places that the detective visited and imagine they are standing on the pavement of the Strand watching the horse drawn traffic pass by."
High praise already from Sue and Mark who got to go!

(edit - wow!  talk about a great museum with setting up various related events, too:  http://www.museumoflondon.org.uk/london-wall/whats-on/adult-events/talks-and-workshops/   Including a talk by author Anthony Horowitz ('House of Silk', and newly released 'Moriarty') and various tours.

Re: Museum of London Exhibition

Wow, definitely something I must see before it closes down.
Good thing to include into my trip.

Re: Museum of London Exhibition

This looks fabulous! Fortunately I planned a trip to London in late November anyway, so I will definitely use the opportunity to see this exhibition (and hopefully also be able to attend a screening of The Imitation Game which should still be on two weeks after its release in the UK). http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png

Re: Museum of London Exhibition

Another cool little thing for those planning to go!  The Museum (which will probably have big signs up or something anyway), is also the site for another neat cross-over exhibit.  London has a 'Paddington Trail' going on, to celebrate the favorite childhood bear, and its new movie, coming out soon.  About 50 different big Paddington Bear statues in favorite city spots, all designed by different artists with quite a few celebrities.  Including.. dun dun… a Sherlock one designed by Benedict, and placed, quite obviously, at the Museum of London to match their other exhibit.  See it here:  http://www.visitlondon.com/paddington/bear/39603032-sherlock-bear
For fellow fans of a certain other BBC show, Peter Capaldi and John Hurt have bears, too!

Re: Museum of London Exhibition

Two things I learned from the SH Exhibition:
 
- Benedict's coat hasn't just the one red button hole at the top – ALL of the holes are red stitched.

Turner's original painting of the Reichenbach Falls clearly shows a fire exit in the rocks – which leads me to new theories about of how SH was able to disappear from the site...http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/wink.png

Re: Museum of London Exhibition

Wow, tobe, and just look how realistically Turner was able to depict the fire exit in his painting...! A true master!

Terrific, tobe!  Your new evidence should give literature researchers something to ponder about!

Turner was well ahead of his time.

He most certainly was.

Re: Museum of London Exhibition

Since I'm going to spend a few days in London in the second half of January I decided to visit the exhibition again and just booked a ticket for this event:

Who’s the best Holmes? Plus exhibition entry

Duration: 3 hours Minimum age: 18 Ticketed event: Advanced booking required Fee Payable: £ 23.00 Adult Event Location: Museum of LondonDescriptionCumberbatch, Brett, Cushing or Rathbone? Many actors have taken on the iconic role on stage and screen, but who did it best? Join in the debate and hear three Sherlock experts state their case – you might leave with a new favourite! Plus visit the exhibition after hours for the final hour of the event.

Re: Museum of London Exhibition

I've been to London for New Year and stayed a couple of days...but was unable to visit the exhibition...do you think it is possible that they run it just a bit longer? Say, after Sherlocked con, for example...?
