FREUD Museum London

FREUD Museum London


The Freud Museum was the final home of Sigmund Freud, the founder of psychoanalysis. The centrepiece is Freud's study, preserved as it was during his lifetime, and includes Freud’s iconic psychoanalytic couch.

“Sigmund Freud shaped the 20th century idea of what a person is; we would not recognise ourselves without him.” Marina Warner 

Freud and his family fled Austria in 1938 following the Nazi annexation. They lived at 20 Maresfield Gardens in Hampstead until Anna Freud - his youngest daughter and herself a pioneer of child psychoanalysis - died in 1982. It was her wish that the house become a museum to honour her father. 

Freud's study includes his extensive library, remarkable collection of over 2,000 Egyptian, Greek and Roman antiquities and of course the couch on which his patients reclined and told him their dreams and memories. 

An independent charity, the Museum receives no government funding. All gifts directly benefit the Museum and help look after Freud's home and collections. In addition to a broad range of research resources and a popular education service, the Museum has a lively programme of conferences, courses, talks and contemporary art exhibitions featuring some of the UK's leading artists and writers.
