You don’t know Sherlock Holmes… yet
A new exhibition at Portsmouth Museum is now open; it explores the connection between the city of Portsmouth and the creation of the Great Sherlock Holmes, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
Showcasing a range of material from the Arthur Conan Doyle Collection, Lancelyn Green Bequest, the new exhibition traces the development of Conan Doyle's career as a writer, from his arrival in Southsea to the writing of the first two Sherlock Holmes novels - A Study in Scarlet and The Sign of Four. Discover more about this fictional detective and test your detective skills through a range of interactive displays.
Along with 'A Study in Sherlock' exhibition this makes Portsmouth Museum the place for all things Sherlock.
