Visit site

Head up to Weston Park this summer to explore the fascinating stories behind some of the country's best-loved dolls’ houses.

On tour from London's V&A Museum of Childhood, Small Stories will take you on a journey through the history of the home through twelve 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.
