Fans of Sherlock Holmes can see rare artifacts and test their own powers of deduction at a new traveling museum exhibit: "The International Exhibition of Sherlock Holmes brings this world to life as never before as you step into Conan Doyle’s Victorian London and work side-by-side with his legendary detective. You will become Holmes’ eyes and ears as he tackles a baffling new case in a world steeped in innovation and experimentation. Along the way you’ll see a dazzling array of original manuscripts, publications, period artifacts, film and television props and costumes. You’ll learn to use investigative tools and techniques from Holmes himself, and test yourself with exciting, interactive crime-solving opportunities." The exhibit is at the OMSI in Portland Oregon through January 5th, and will then travel to St. Louis, Dallas, and Santa Ana. More info at the official website here. BBC's popular Sherlock series starring Benedict Cumberbatch just began its third season. The new episodes will debut in the US on January 19th. BBC has posted a page with historical images and a mini-video with Christopher Lee discussing Peter Cushing as Sherlock here. Fans of vintage mysteries will enjoy Spy Vibe's image archive of Mystery/Adventures here. Hurry along! The game’s afoot!
