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.

  • It's a good place if you are new to the genuineness of Sigmund Freud. It's a good window to getting to know him and his great work. But if you already know and read books by Dr. Freud then you may find the place lacking of information. Your curiosity is not really met with the right answers. Visiting the library needs prior permission.
  • Sigmund Freud's home and workplace for some 50 years! All his belongings, the furniture and artifacts are gone, but a hat, a walking stick and a suitcase with his initials SF in the evocative entrance room. Freud took the famous couch with him when he fled to London. Though there's ersatz in the form of a couch made by the artists Franz West. The audio-guide is a worthwhile companion. There's always an interesting temporary exhibitions, too. But, to be honest, for one of the most influential intellectuals that has ever lived, the museum is a bit small and quite disappointing nonetheless! Before Sigmund Freud moved into the new building in Berggasse 19, it was the house of Victor Adler's family. Downstairs, where the Kornmehl butcher shop used to be there's nowadays a showroom for contemporary art.
  • Not a bad museum for Freud fans. It was a bit crowded, but very interesting. I recommend checking it out if you have time and are interested in Freud.
  • Love this place. But I genuinely think that there can be a better introduction to his theories. More focussed on his personal life. But interesting place to visit when in Vienna.
  • If your interested in getting to know about his life - then do visit! I enjoyed the visit. It's not your typical museum. It's more about his personal life.
