• Ride the (Route 722) or DART Rail Red Line, Blue Line, Green Line or Orange Line to Akard Station, then an approximately 1/2 mile walk on Field Street for the final weekend of The International Exhibition of Sherlock Holmes at the Perot Museum. There’s nothing more deceptive than an obvious fact – it may be “elementary” for Sherlock Holmes, but how will you fare when you try to solve a captivating, original murder mystery in the tradition of the master detective? The legendary sleuth of Baker Street, a chemistry and forensics expert ahead of his time, used seemingly trivial observations of evidence that others missed to solve the most baffling mysteries imaginable. His practices and techniques changed the way police work was conducted in the real world, lighting the way to the modern forensics of today. The Perot Museum of Nature and Science is located at 2201 N. Field St. Information: www.perotmuseum.org.
