George Müller cared for 10,000 orphaned children in Bristol during the 19th Century. He never made appeals for money, trusting implicitly in God, he received £1,500,000 in answer to prayer. At present day prices, this would be well over £86,000,000.
“He has showed you, mankind, what is good. and what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God” (Micah 6:8).

Our extensive archives house records of all the orphans that were cared for in the Müller Orphan Homes in Bristol - over 17,000 of them.
We often receive requests from individuals who are tracing their family history and, at a small charge, we are able to provide information and photocopies of the admission and dismissal dates of the orphans. In addition, there is usually other information we can locate in our archives such as a record of family details and a correspondence file, although these differ per record.
These records do not form part of the public museum but can be viewed by arrangement. If you wish to arrange to view the records at our museum, please contact us to make an appointment.
Unfortunately we are unable to take any family history visits until our museum reopens on 1st September 2019. Contact us for more information regarding family history requests.
As we undertake this exciting move there may be some disruption during the week commencing the 15th July as we pack, move and settle in. Our office will be closed from 12 noon on Tuesday 15th and reopen on Friday 19th at 10am. Therefore, there may be some delay in sending any copies of family history records. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
