Windsor exhibition to celebrate centenary of unique doll house

Between 17th January and 31st December 2024, the Royal Collections Trust is putting on an exhibition to celebrate the centenary of a dolls' house belonging to King Charles III's great grandmother

26 Jan 2024

A dolls' house which has been on permanent display at Windsor Castle since 1925,  is being celebrated in a new exhibition in 2024, as it marks the centenary since its creation. 

The dolls' house was created for Queen Mary, King Charles III’s great grandmother, by architect Sir Edwin Lutyens and built between 1921 and 1924.

The dolls' house is a 1:12 scale replica of an aristocratic Edwardian residence.

What makes the doll’s house unique is its attention to detail and the fact that it has electricity, working lifts, running water and even a fully-stocked wine cellar, making it as close to a real-life miniature house from the period as possible. 

Visitors will be able to visit the “100 Years of Queen Mary’s Dolls’ House” exhibition every Monday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday at Windsor Castle. The exhibition is running from 18th Jan 2024 – Monday 30th December 2024 (excl. Friday 29th March 2024)
