  • I saw some reviews here on Tripadvisor about the Museum, but if you care about the subject, is a must! Now, if you don't even know who is Freud and want to go there to look for an interactive museum, full of media, is not the case. Is the House where he lived and where he attended. Is personal. Talks a lot about his life, about his family and little about Psychoanalytical theory itself, then I think it might be interesting and accessible to many.

  • 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?
