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.
We love to share the story of George Müller, and his impact on Bristol, with school children as a part of their curriculum learning. We are happy to welcome groups of school-children to the museum, or we can bring the story to your local school in Bristol. There are also a range of teaching resources available.
To arrange a School Visit please either fill out our contact form or give us a call on 0117 924 5001.
A typical visit will consist of a short talk to the class about George Müller:
There will also be an opportunity to explore the museum, which houses photographs, artefacts and interactive screens. In addition, there is a worksheet for the children to complete and take away with them to aid further classroom learning.
A member of staff will be on hand to answer any questions that the children may have throughout their visit. A typical class visit will last upto one hour. It is possible to bring multiple classes, staggering visits across a morning or afternoon.
The school remains responsible for the supervision and care of the children during the visit, through the instruction of their class teacher and school helpers.
Schools that we have welcomed in the past include Bishop Road Primary and Elmlea Junior School.
We can bring the story of George Müller to your school, either in a classroom setting, or as an assembly. We have a number of photographs and artefacts that we can bring to illustrate the story, including original orphan uniforms.
We have a range of teaching resources and lesson ideas available which are free of charge and can be downloaded from our website.
We are more than happy to supply additional resources (where available) for you to use in your school. Please contact us with any specific requests that you have.
