4.1/5 based on 190+ reviews on the web
Sigmund Freud's home during his final year of life, today the site of The Freud Museum 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.

  • For those interested in psychoanalysis is a thrilling ride. The House is in a bucolic Street, with those nice house English brick red. Freud's Office is fully preserved, as if he were to walk through the door at any moment.

  • While we expected a good experience based on reviews of the museum located in Freud's house in London, we had no idea just how good this museum is. From the audio phone to the guided tour to the signa...  read more »
  • Ivan ward and his staff run a very good ship. The conferences are wonderful they have opened up psychoanalysis and culture to a wider world. A great achievement. 
  • Freud's last home has been cleverly transformed into a museum, offering a fascinating insight into the life and method of one of the most influential personas of the 20th century. The gift shop is rather pricy, but a must. Check out the waste bin right out of the house!
  • A very significant historical place for all those interested in the Freuds (Sigmund, Anna, etc.) and in Hampstead, its buildings of architectural interest and the historical associations of the area. For about a year, the Freud Museum was my daily view from the residence where I lived. At that time the great Anna Freud still lived there.
  • This is a very interesting place, part museum, part 'monument'. It's small, I think it could have more information about Freud's work but it has lots on Anna's.
  • The name of this place is quite misleading. There is very little about the life of Freud or his research, it's simply the house he spent one year of his life with some of his possessions. You can see his couch and desk but can't get particularly close to either. The rest of the house has some more of his furniture intermingled with photographs and other items from the modern day. It's all a bit empty really and at £8 a ticket not really worth it either.
  • I would highly recommend the Freud Museum for a venure hire. I hired the Freud Museum last night 26th November for my book launch of 'The Consciousness Bearers' by Ruth Golan. Besides the lovely surroundings which made the event so memorable, the friendly and helpful frontdesk team of Daniel and Francisco made it an excellent experience. The venue hire and setup was smooth and stress free. Thank you very much, Daniel and Francisco.
