We explored the legacy of Sherlock Holmes, one of history’s most beloved and enduring characters on our Travel Date to the Minnesota History Center, St. Paul, MN. In this special MNHS exhibition, we learned insights about Holmes and his literary creator, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. We enjoyed hands-on experiences and tools to solve a crime from the vivid Crime Scene. This blog is for Sherlock fans of any genre – and all inquisitive minds! Enjoy!
