Founded in 1971, the museum features about 2,000 documents. The archive of images includes photographs, paintings, drawings, and sculptures, plus signed copies and first editions of his works.

  • The atmosphere. Although all the artefacts are in the Freud museum in London, you get a much better sense of the layout and atmosphere of Freud's home. Where he lived from the early 1890s to the late 1930s (some 50 odd years).
  • The audioguide is very thorough on all aspects of Freud's life and work. There are many original objects on display, and a lot of pictures too. Temporary exhibitions are well constructed and very interesting.
  • Really great Freud museum if you are a fan! You get to see his actual office and living space and there are lots of office trinkets around to look at. It also has a really cute gift shop.
  • Interesting as a psychology student to get more of an insight into the life and studies of Freud. Shame that most of his belongings are in London but still very much worth a visit if you are interested and in Vienna.
  • They do not have Freud's couche. It is in England. But still very interesting. You can see some old films of Freud. Incidentally: "Freude" means something like "happiness"in German. Just a coincidence?
