George Müller cared for 10,000 orphaned children in Bristol during the Victorian era. He was a man of great faith, never making appeals for money, but simply praying to God for all that was needed. During his lifetime he received £1,500,000 in money and gifts in kind. At present day prices, this would be over £100m.
The George Müller Museum celebrates the incredible story of how George Müller cared for and educated over 10,000 orphans in Victorian Bristol through prayer and faith.
We welcome visitors from the UK and all over the world, as well as local families and school children. In July 2019 we are relocating to one of the original Orphan Homes in Ashley Down, Bristol. We want to grow our visitor numbers so that more people can hear this amazing story and be inspired.
We are recruiting a team of volunteers to help bring our new museum to life. This is an exciting time for the George Müller Museum as we relocate to Orphan Home No.2 and establish our brand-new museum with interactive exhibits. We are also developing an exciting learning programme for schools and families. We want our visitors to have fun, learn something new and be inspired. To make this happen, we are recruiting for two volunteer roles.
We are looking for people who are interested in helping regularly and/or on an ad hoc basis when visits and workshops are booked.
Morning sessions: 10am – 1pm
Afternoon sessions: 1pm – 4pm
Some visits and workshops do not last for a whole session – we would still love to hear from you if you can offer a couple of hours.
