  • There is a beautiful moment to visit the House as analyst or tourist. The audio guides allow many insights into the life of Freud's. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The rooms have disappointed me something - up on Hall and waiting room there is no furniture, just large canvases with photos and many facsimile letters that very touch and allow unknown insights into the family dynamics. The House is nice to visit the apartment just in the representative rooms. Bathroom, kitchen etc are not to enter. € 12 entrance fee slightly overpriced.

  • Original apartment, well laid out and well preserved. Very informative and thought provoking. No waiting or queuing on the day we visited. Very glad we included this museum on our trip. 
  • My mum and I visited whilst on a city break, she is really into Freud etc (she works in that area) I knew very little more than the basics. Both found it interesting though it can look 'closed' from t...  more »

  • 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?
