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.

School Outreach Visits

We would encourage visits to our museum, but 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.

Teaching Resources

We have a range of teaching resources and lesson ideas available which are free of charge and can be downloaded from our website. 

Additional Resources

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.
