Quite surprising, never new Sherlock holmes had anything to do with the area. Nice small towm at the base of a mountain pass.

I am not really a fan of Sherlock Holmes, but was free with my Swiss Travel Pass, when I was walking around Meiringen.. Many interesting facts on signs outside the museum as well as inside. Had a room setup to look like 221B Baker street.

We arrived in Meiringen quite late in the day (approximately 17:30) and decided to check out the museum before going to the Reichenbach falls. We stopped by the front desk to ask where to park and how to get to the falls. We were provided...More

A jewel of a museum well worth a visit with a delightful tour guide who really brought it all to life for us

Really rather lovely. Painstaking reconstruction of 221B (seems rather a long way to go to find it) plus various displays contemporaneous to Holmes and Watson. Low key, but fascinating for those interested in the world's Most Famous Detective. Recommended.

I've read all the Sherlock Holmes' books and short stories (more than once). If you're a fan, this museum is great. It's small but has a lot of interesting exhibits -- plus an audio guide. The best thing is the re-creation of the living room...More

So we are ardent fans of "Sherlock", and we chanced upon this town and museum. It has a replica of the room just as it would have been in the book. It would be a treat for ANY Sherlock fan!

Based in the cellars of the old English church the place pretends to be Sherlock’s museum. In fact it is a strange collection of the low importance artifacts of an era provided by the Sherlock Holmes Society in London. The audio guide tells well-known facts...More

Sir Doyle would have loved this place. Hidden in a plain sight under an old Anglican church, you'll find a tiny hall with very curious artifacts. The audio guide in many languages gives you a nice tour around them and you'll soon learn that every...More

I do not know - but it is Switzerland and they allow their dogs into restaurants, trains and many other places not possible in my country. Good luck.

Having now been, I can answer my own question--this museum is cash only.

Yes, there is a train from Interlaken which goes to Meiringen. The ride is about 30 minutes.
