The International Exhibition of Sherlock Holmes
Entering the International Exhibition of Sherlock Holmes at The Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI) you are welcomed with a message from Richard Doyle, one of four directors of the Conan Doyle estate as well as Conan Doyle’s great nephew. I had the honor of interviewing Mr. Doyle, he was humbled and honored to be in Portland at OMSI for the World Premier of the exhibit. We chatted about the urban legend of how Londoners reacted to the death of Sherlock Holmes. Mr. Doyle made a point to say that Conan Doyle never stopped loving the characters, but it was a great burden for him; however he couldn’t say no to bringing our favorite detective back from the dead.
Well, back to the exhibit… Much like Conan Doyle’s short stories, the exhibit is broken up into sections. Each section draws you in and making you think. How very fitting that an exhibit for Sherlock Holmes is not only entertaining but thought-provoking as well. The creators of the exhibit made it a point to make the experience educational and interactive. The first section is known as Dr. Conan Doyle’s Study; in which you are transported to Victorian London. You gather more information about who inspired not only Conan Doyle’s writing style, but also learn more about Jonathan Bell; a professor from Edinburgh University where Conan Doyle studied. Conan Doyle credited this man as being a base for Holmes and his powers of observation. The study section includes original manuscripts, letters, illustrations, and period-specific medical innovations.
