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.
We welcome pupils from all key stages at our new, interactive museum. Our workshops are free of charge and cover elements of the History and RE curricula. We are happy to tailor workshops to the needs/interests of the class. Our workshops give pupils the opportunity to explore the incredible story of George Müller and his impact on Bristol. We would encourage visits to the museum but can also 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 about 75 minutes. 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.
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.
