Sherlock Holmes Museum

Sherlock Holmes Museum

Fans of the famous quintessentially English detective flock to Lucens in La Broye, thirty minutes from Lausanne, to visit the Sherlock Holmes Museum created by Sir Conan Doyle’s son, Adrian. When he came to live in Lucens, he paid tribute to his father’s literary creation with this museum, which is open during weekends and on request.

Arthur Conan Doyle (1859-1930) was the creator of the fictional detective Sherlock Holmes and published 56 short stories and 4 novels between 1886 and 1927 in which Holmes gets to grips with the most delicate cases, always with great success.

When his son Adrian (1910-1970) came to live in Lucens in 1965, he created a museum dedicated to his father’s work including a collection of books and objects relating to Sherlock Holmes.

The museum includes a meticulous reconstruction of the living room used by Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson based on the descriptions in the stories, faithfully recreating the ambiance of this room with hundreds of authentic objects, some of them very strange. The collection also includes many objects and furniture that provided the inspiration for the Sherlock Holmes stories.
