Details

Explore the fascinating stories behind some of the UK’s best-loved dolls’ houses in this new exhibition on tour from the V&A Museum of Childhood.

Small Stories will take visitors to Weston Park on a journey through the history of the home through 12 intricately crafted dolls’ houses spanning over 300 years. Marriages, parties, politics and crime play out in country mansions, suburban villas, newly-built council estates and high-rise apartments, as each house is brought to life by the characters that live and work there.
