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 2019 we relocated 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, by welcoming visitors and helping them get the most from their visit. Our new museum is full of interesting facts, artefacts and interactive exhibits. We have 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.
