ST. PAUL, Minn (March 2, 2023) – The Minnesota Historical Society has welcomed thousands of guests from 36 states, 19 countries, and six different continents to Sherlock Holmes: The Exhibition since opening the exhibit doors in October of 2022! Visitors have flocked to the Minnesota History Center to test their detective skills and immerse themselves into what life was like for the world’s most notorious detective.

Visitors of all ages take a step back in time, pouring over original manuscripts and period artifacts while using investigative tools to solve a possible murder. This truly unique exhibition brings author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s vibrant stories to life by highlighting areas of forensic science that enabled Sherlock Holmes to solve the mysteries and crimes of his time.

The exhibition was made possible by contributions from the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension alongside St. Paul-based Exhibits Development Group, LLC.
