With its original manuscripts and period artifacts, investigative tools influenced and used by Sherlock Holmes, interactive crime-solving opportunities and a robust collection of all things “Sherlockian,” ranging from vintage comics, and magazines to movie and television props and costumes, The International Exhibition of Sherlock Holmes is a wonderland for all of us who fancy ourselves amateur sleuths. Sadly, though, all good things must come to an end, and the show is finally wrapping up its North America tour, with a final stop in Seattle. Modern-day investigators will be like kids in a candy store as they wander through this interactive exhibition at the Pacific Science Center, running Oct. 15, 2016 to Jan. 8, 2017.
Provenance Hotels’ Hotel Max and Roosevelt Hotel, both located in Seattle, are teaming up with Holmes, Watson and friends to mark the end of the show’s run by offering the Elementary, My Dear overnight package. The package, bookable now for stays during the show’s run, includes overnight admission in Seattle at either Hotel Max or the Roosevelt Hotel; admission for two to the exhibition; two tickets to explore the mysteries of Seattle’s Victorian past with the Seattle Underground Tour; a commemorative Sherlock Holmes notebook for recording keen observations about this one-of-a-kind getaway; and two Holmes-inspired “Study in Scarlet” cocktails at Miller’s Guild, the restaurant partner at Hotel Max. Created by Miller’s Guild’s master bartenders to celebrate this Sherlock stopover in Seattle, the Study in Scarlet pairs Earl Grey tea, Amontillado sherry and pomegranate with lavender. Rates start at $219 per night. For more information, visit hotelmaxseattle.com/special-offers or roosevelthotel.com/special-offers.
