Small Stories

Renowned for its world-class collection and dedication to preservation, London’s Victoria and Albert Museum of Childhood offers a nostalgic look at Great Britain’s cultural heritage. Recently, the institution loaned a dozen of its prized dollhouses to the National Building Museum in Washington DC for a special show titled Small Stories: At Home in a Dollhouse. The exquisite exhibition features twelve dollhouses, offering a range of “country mansions, the Georgian town house, suburban villas, newly-built council estates, and high-rise apartments.”
The miniature homes are curated chronologically to represent a period of 300 years and highlight the changing tastes and defining styles of each period. more
