The powers of observation will lead modern day sleuths through The International Exhibition of Sherlock Holmes at Portland's OMSI and, in keeping with the spirit, the historic Governor Hotel is offering a getway package that is simply Elementary, My Dear.
Portland, OR (PRWEB) September 25, 2013
Seemingly trivial clues whose true meaning are unlocked by the powers of observation will lead modern day investigators through The International Exhibition of Sherlock Holmes, an interactive exhibition making its world debut October 10, 2013 at Oregon Museum of Science and Industry.
In conjunction with the exhibition, the Governor Hotel is offering an Elementary, My Dear overnight package that includes admission for two to the exhibition; an authentic Deerstalker hat, just like the one Holmes himself famously wears; a commemorative exhibition chocolate bar; $20 food and beverage credit to Jake’s Grill at the Governor Hotel; and a notebook for recording keen observations about this one-of-a-kind getaway.
While exploring The International Exhibition of Sherlock Holmes, guests will be transported to Holmes’ London to solve a crime in a world filled with innovation and experimentation. The fictional sleuth’s now iconic 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, 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 Governor Hotel’s Elementary, My Dear package can be booked now for stays between October 10, 2013 and January 5, 2014 at http://www.governorhotel.com/specials. Rates start at $259, per night, plus tax.
The International Exhibition of Sherlock Holmes was developed by Exhibits Development Group and Geoffrey M. Curley + Associates in collaboration with the Conan Doyle Estate Limited, the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, and the Museum of London.
