I am pretty excited about a new exhibit coming to OMSI on October 10th. Here is a blurb from the press release:
Sherlock Holmes, a chemistry and forensics expert ahead of his time, used seemingly trivial observations of clues others missed to solve some of his era’s most mysterious crimes. His practices and techniques, created in the mind of doctor turned-author Conan Doyle, changed the way police work was conducted, and remain in practice today. The International Exhibition of Sherlock Holmes features original manuscripts and period artifacts, investigative tools influenced and used by Sherlock Holmes, and interactive crime-solving opportunities. Guests will be transported into Sherlock Holmes’ London to solve a crime in a world that was being introduced to his ground-breaking methods for the first time, a world filled with innovation and experimentation.
This sounds like a lot of fun and I am looking forward to checking it out. The exhibit runs from October 10th to January 5th. Admission to the exhibit will cost $18, which includes general admission to the rest of the museum. If you want to save a few bucks consider going on the first Sunday of the month. On the first Sunday general admission is $2 so you may be able to pay the difference and see the Sherlock Holmes exhibit for only $7. Call ahead to confirm or just be prepared to pay the whole $18.by
