Perched at the top of Weston Park in Sheffield, a miniature-themed exhibition explores the fascinating stories behind some of the UK’s best-loved dolls’ houses.

Small Stories is a touring exhibition from the V&A Museum of Childhood that takes visitors 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.

The exhibition encompasses country mansions, the Georgian town house, suburban villas, newly-built council estates and high-rise apartments. The houses will also show developments in architecture and design.
