COLUMBUS, OH --- Footprints, splatter patterns and the powers of observation mark the journey through The International Exhibition of Sherlock Holmes, opening February 8, 2014 at COSI. The interactive experience combines science with history and culture to bring to life the historic underpinnings of author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's rich and vibrant stories.

Museum visitors will learn how Sherlock Holmes, a scientific expert ahead of his time, used seemingly trivial observations of clues others missed to solve some of his era's most mysterious crimes. His practices and techniques, created in the mind of doctor-turned-author Conan Doyle, changed the way police work was conducted and remain in practice today. The International Exhibition of Sherlock Holmes features original manuscripts and period artifacts, investigative tools influenced and used by Sherlock Holmes, and interactive crime-solving opportunities. Guests will be transported into Sherlock Holmes' London to solve a crime in a world filled with innovation and experimentation – and just receiving its introduction to his ground-breaking methods.
