Muller's Story

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.

FREE ONLINE SESSIONS FOR SCHOOLS AND GROUPS

Although the museum has reopened to the public, according to government guidance we cannot yet accommodate visits of more than 6 people or 2 households.

Therefore, we are continuing to offer our popular online lessons for schools and groups via video conferencing software. Sessions are interactive, last about an hour and include a presentation of the story of George Müller and his 10,000 orphans, a taste of orphan life using fascinating historical photos and some activities. We’ve had some great feedback:

“It was perfect! The children were really hooked in…making lots of links to their History, RE and Geography learning.”

“Children were engaged throughout the whole lesson. It was pitched brilliantly, and the questions involved them in the session.”

“It was much better than "excellent"! We really loved it and have recommended it to our colleagues already.”

Please get in touch to find out more or book an online session: admin@mullers.org

School Outreach Visits

We hope to be able to offer in-school visits as soon as possible. In these sessions we can bring the story of George Müller to your school, either in a classroom setting, or as an assembly. We would need facilities for a visual presentation, and we have some photographs and artefacts that we can bring to illustrate the story, including original orphan uniforms. Please contact us as above.
