George Müller Museum


The George Müller Museum celebrates the incredible story of how George Müller cared for and educated over 10,000 orphans in Victorian Bristol. A pioneer in his time, Müller was ground-breaking in his treatment and education of orphan girls and boys, setting up 5 huge orphan homes which can still be seen on Ashley Down Road, Bristol. The twist in the tale is that George Müller never fund-raised or asked for any money – he simply prayed and the resources poured in. In fact, during his lifetime, he received around £100m in today’s terms.

Our museum in Cotham will close on 1st July 2019 because we are on the move: 60 years after the orphan homes were sold, we are moving back into Orphan Home No 2 on Ashley Down Road. Our amazing collection of artefacts and orphan records will be displayed in brand-new contemporary and interactive exhibits.  We will be open for bookings again from September – entry will continue to be free of charge. We welcome bookings from schools who may wish to take advantage of our vibrant school workshops for all key stages.
