    Museum's Description
    Teacher notes
    • Have you ever seen a dolls' house this realistic? All the contents have been carefully designed to be exactly the right size for the house and are made out of the same materials their normal sized versions would be. The original dolls are sadly missing.

      Things to think about...
      • Who do you think would have owned a dolls' house like this?
      • Do you think it would have been played with?
      • Can we use this dolls' house to figure out things about the culture and time it came from?
