  • I liked it and I thrilled, but I studied a little about Psychoanalysis and about Freud's life. I've been in this Museum in 1991 and came back in 2016 and found almost all the same. The Museum could have evolved into multimedia solutions in those 25 years. Much of the content of the Museum is in the photographs on the walls, numbered, you will accompany in a folder with leaves with numbered comments about each of these pictures, these comments taken d work of Freud or his correspondence. Like I said, it's interesting and exciting for those who know the work of Freud, but the folders are the same as 25 years ago. I think that during this period they could give a better use for this material.

  • The truth is very expensive for a Department with books, a couch and not much more. It may be interesting to those who studied pscilogia, but I do not anything I liked.

  • It is, in fact, in the House where Sigmund Freud lived and used to study for visits to patients. So this is a very collected and concentrated, divided into approximately 3-4 rooms, exhibiting some of his work tools, writings, photographs of the era and other material. At the entrance there is of course a small shop where you can buy books and small present that take us back to the memory of the founder of psychoanalysis. I can state that the House has undergone renovations, and it remained intact in the essence; Everything contributes to making an impressive place, and definitely attractive to experts or, as in my case, for simple curious tourists.

  • 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?
