The Perot Museum has been very nice to their Dallas/Fort Worth Bloggers. They have invited us out twice now and have provided us with tickets to give away to our local readers. Here’s our 2nd visit to the Museum where we got to visit the Sherlock Holmes Exhibit. This Exhibit is way cool for the whole family, and one not to be missed. I’ll be giving away 4 tickets on my Facebook personal page, so be sure to find me there!
Brody got to be little Sherlock Holmes for a moment or two. This was provided for us after the blogger meeting.
Speaking of the Sherlock Holmes – here’s some valuable information about the Exhibit.
THE INTERNATIONAL EXHIBITION OF SHERLOCK HOLMES (now through May 10, 2015) delves into the world of one of the most beloved and recognizable figures in literature and popular culture. In this extremely hands-on forensic experience, visitors will learn first-hand how Sherlock Holmes, a scientific expert ahead of his time, used seemingly trivial observations of clues others missed to solve some of literature’s most mysterious crimes. The fictional detective’s practices and techniques, created in the mind of doctor-turned-author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, revolutionized forensic science and remain relevant in modern-day crime investigations. Guests will venture to Baker Street to collect clues and solve a crime using the same interactive methods and investigative tools employed by Holmes more than a century ago. The bilingual exhibition (presented in English and Spanish) also includes a dazzling array of original manuscripts, publications, period artifacts, and film and television props and costumes. Admission to The International Exhibition of Sherlock Holmes requires a surcharge for members and non-members. Ticket prices noted at end of release.
Inside the Sherlock Holmes Exhibit where photos were allowed. Below are a few areas of the house that’s staged as Sherlock Holmes saw it. Pretty messy I might say!!
As you walk into the Exhibit, you’ll be handed a notebook full of exciting key points and places where you can punch your card as you stroll through the Exhibit being the detective that you are!! There’s one for adults and one for the little ones. Brody was very excited that daddy let him press the button.
There’s Museum helpers all around the Exhibit to help out with any questions or directions. While we were there, there just happen to be 200 eighteen-year-olds viewing the Exhibit from a local high school. Someone apologized to us, but we thought it was pretty neat to see the kids being engaged in this history.
The Children’s Museum is designed especially for children 5 years and younger. Brody’s favorite place!!
There’s so much hands-on activities for everyone in the family. Also, if you’re looking for something to do with your kids during spring break, you will find all the information you need on the Press Release.
I’ll leave you with this color sheet of Sherlock Holmes that Brody colored during the blogger meeting.
Don’t forget to visit http://perotmuseum.org for Spring Break in the Dallas area. We are very much grateful that Dallas, TX built this amazing Museum right in the heart of the West End area!!
