Happy Birthday Arthur Conan Doyle

Today we celebrate the birth of Arthur Conan Doyle. The man who prompted generations of forensic curiousity. Since finishing the Sherlock series, the stories have been recreated, continued and enjoyed my millions.

I’m using his birthday as an excuse to share another gallery. The International Exhibition of Sherlock Holmes exhibit was amazing geeky fun, and Seattle’s Pacific Science Center is perfect for photos.

The international traveling exhibit was more hands-on than the Art of the Brick, and more science and history than literature. The leather-bound first edition copy of The Murders in the Rue Morgue was beautiful, and behind glass. That was all the literature. Displays showed artifacts and news of the time. There were mysteries to solve. I do wonder if some of the parents realized the skull and spinal bones were real and human.

The final room shows the impact of Arthur Conan Doyle’s stories. Props and posters from TV shows and movies are displayed. I loved seeing Sherlock’s lock practice wall from Elementary. And the Umbridge-like pink suitcase from BBC’s Sherlock.

Enjoy the photos, and happy birthday to Arthur Conan Doyle.
