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.

  • Only one of the main rooms (the Waiting Room) and the entrance lobby were as they were in Freud's time, with the original or similar furniture. All the others are awaiting renovation, and are basicall...  more »
  • As a psychology major, this was interesting to see. My kiddos were bored but fortunately it wasn’t too big so we were able to go through quickly. Loved the English audio guide. And small gift shop at ...  more »

  • Fun artifacts and lots of history — best if you are familiar with his work and the work of his colleagues. Many writings in German, so may not appeal to everyone. Fascinating set of apartments to experience. Sometimes a wait to get in, as the apartments are small relative to demand and capacity is limited.
  • The audio guide is uncomfortable, since you have to hold it up to your ear. Maybe if you bring your own headphones this can be a bit better.The audio posts are very long, too long, given to what you can actually see. And there are almost no chairs to sit and listen. The older part of the museum is stuffy. I don't know why they don't open a window. Along with the uncomfortable audio guide, you also get a book from which one is supposed to read about all 300 photos, letters, art works etc., since nothing is written next to exhibition pieces. So, audible in one hand, and a whole book in the other, searching for that number 245. And you have to do it while standing in front of the exhibition piece, since there is no smaller version of it in the book, which would at least allow you to read about it in the newer part of the museum, where one can sit down. This is a museum, in which you have to read a lot from an awkwardly designed book (designed is an overstatement. It does not seem that people thought about what and why they are preparing it in this format). Not worth 12€. A friend that visited the museum at the same time described the overkill of random bits of information in the old part of the museum as "... having a dream with a severe headache." No interpretation needed.
  • I was a bit disappointed, did expect more information about his work and the museum itself felt impersonal. Since it takes place in his apartment I expected more artifacts and a more genuine feeling when walking around but felt like this could have been an exhibition about Freud taking place anywhere... The best part was the video room where they showed some clips from the last year's of Freud narrated by his daughter Anna Freud
  • Pretty cool to see Freud's apartment. They focus more on his family life at this museum. Not much about his famous works. The line to get in was a bit long. They are going to make the place bigger in the future from what I heard there. It's still cool to see how he lived.
  • Tickets (adult): 12€ Time for visit: 2 to 2h30 Extremely interesting for anyone looking to learn more about Freud, his works, and his personal life. It's a shame that the museum is not more interactive -- there is a lot of reading material to go through throughout the exhibition. Only the waiting room and the vestibule have been preserved in their original space.
