Straight Sleuthin'

Are you one of those a-holes who cracks the case before the detectives on the show and then ruins it for everyone else by shouting, “Oh, come on, it’s clearly the shifty chimney sweep?” First of all, you’re an a-hole. We covered that. But second of all, your time has come. A tweed-cloaked interactive exhibit opens at the Perot Museum on Valentine’s Day. A nominal fee will grant you access to Sherlock Holmes’ world, where you’ll participate in an investigation, follow clues and hopefully nab the bad guys. Throughout your hunt you’ll see “original manuscripts, period artifacts, and film and television props and costumes.” Sherlock Holmes’ observational skills changed the way investigations are conducted even today, and now you can put yours to the test. Use your eyes but don’t forget your ears. Find your way to the Perot Museum (2201 N. Field St.) from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday. The exhibit runs through May 10. Admission is $8 for museum members, $29 for non-members. More at perotmuseum.org.
Mondays-Saturdays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.; Sun., Feb. 15, 12-5 p.m. Starts: Feb. 14. Continues through May 10, 2015
