Freud Museum London, London

4.2
Sigmund Freud's home during his final year of life, today the site of Freud Museum London tells the story of the famous psychoanalyst's life. Freud inhabited the home with his daughter, Anna, from 1938 to 1939, after fleeing the Nazi occupation of Austria. The house maintains much of its original layout, with rooms dedicated to Freud's study, library, hall, dining room, and Anna's bedroom. Explore the museum to learn more about Freud's life, as well as the life of Anna, who lived in the home for 44 years while continuing her father's important psychoanalytic work. Freud's study remains preserved just as it was during his life, complete with the famous couch on which his patients reclined.

  • Freud has lived there only a year. There is sofa ne, that's about it. Otherwise Egyptian and grieschicher stuff. What this museum to me is a mystery. The visit only Hampstet

  • The building is quaint, the Interior of the House itself is not very interesting, but the studio ... crazy to think that those objects have belonged to Freud and he collected and loved so much by wanting to die surrounded by them. An emotion.

  • If you are interested in Freud, his family or his story this is a fascinating little stop. Very knowledgeable staff and the director's tour adds to the experience.  more »

  • In a beautiful and quiet Hampstead road this was Freud's residence after he fled Vienna to escape the Nazis. The founder of psychoanalysis will say that would be "our last address on the planet". Inside the house some of the original furniture shipped from Vienna such as the sofa the patients will lay during their psychoanalytic sessions and many of Freud's antiques. There is also a section on his daughter Anna, considered founder of psychoanalytic child psychology, who kept living there after her father's departure. No photographs are allowed inside the house but there is a small shop with postcards.
  • Here you will see one of the most important rooms on the planet. Almost, as Freud's work was really done in Vienna and it was to London he came for sanctuary. But it was also Anna Freud's base, and it is a great experience to be in this place which so shaped our perhaps futile, though always brave, attempts at self-understanding.
  • Highly interesting to those closely familiar with Freud's work. Mildly interested at best to anyone else. Be prepared for a roughly 30 minutes experience, overall.
  • Freud museum is amazing. You most go on a tour around the house you find out so much information and it is so interesting. Because you are in the Freud house it can get a bit cramped when do the tour. But all in all it is must see.
  • Not 5 stars due to half of house being closed off building. Great free tour at 2pm and 4pm! Also, the original garden is open and gets sun all day

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
