As a family with a Sherlock - crazy child, it was definitely a worthwhile place to visit. Seeing everything from the stories in front of you, as well as the characters wax figures, was truly unforgettable. The store beside it was filled with all the...More

I wouldn't recommend paying the 15 pounds to see the actual museum, as it is nothing special at all. But there's a good photo op to be had in front and the gift shop sells some interesting Sherlock related items. There's also a statue of...More

Really friendly staff, quite good if you don’t want an overly interactive day but want to absorb some facts and history. Only £15 each for adult tickets and a brilliant souvenir shop! Allow 30-45mins depends on if you take brief glances or if you want...More

Visiting this museum is the best way to experience a real Victorian home. The policeman at the door, the maids in Victorian dresses inside, Victorian furnishings - it is all done wonderfully! Great London experience! Highly recommended.

It's a small but cute museum with a cool gift shop! The staff were so kind and helpful. You can hear some interesting about Sherlock Holmes, I would be more happy if I could hear more interesting things, but it was fine.

You have to be a pretty big fan of Sherlock Holmes to really enjoy this museum. The museum has the same "feeling" as the stories and is therefore a great place to visit for those who would like to see the location of these stories....More

The museum itself is fine, albeit tiny (3 and a half floors). But beware the museum manager would give change if expired banknotes to unawaring tourists at the gift shop, which is almost like fraud because there is no easy way of exchanging them for...More

Marylebone offers what so many London neighbourhoods
cannot: a village feel coupled with urban convenience.
Much of its success rests in its location. Wedged
between the northeastern corner of Hyde Park and the
southern end of Regent's Park and with a number of
Tube stations within easy reach, Marylebone is as
pedestrian friendly as Central London gets. The
bustling shopping mecca of Oxford Street separates it

If you want to visit on a specific date better check their opening hours as these may vary. I would say, go about one hour before closing time as it will give you plenty of time to enjoy the museum and take all the pictures... More
