The May Museum Presents New Exhibit: “Sherlock Holmes and the Clocktower Mystery”


A shocking crime has been committed and Victorian London’s most celebrated detective needs your help to find out “whodunit!” Sherlock Holmes and the Clocktower Mystery is a clever, interactive exhibition coming to the Wilbur D. May Museum. Challenge your powers of observation and deductive reasoning as you work to solve a baffling mystery!

Grab a Detective Guide and enter the exhibition. You’ll find yourself transported back in time, experiencing the sights, sounds-and even the smells!-of Victorian London. First, you’ll visit the clocktower, where a murder has taken place. Then you’ll walk through seven other locations, including a carnival sideshow, a séance room, the London docks, and more. Search for clues in each room… but beware of red herrings that might lead you off track!

When you think you know the name of the murderer, enter the study. There, you’ll be questioned about your conclusions by Sherlock Holmes (played by a live actor), and the mystery will be solved in a dramatic finale!
