The Freud Museum, London

(4.1/5 based on 200+ 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.

  • Super interesting museum with fascinating artifacts, including Freud's chair and chaise lounge for his patients. Well thought out and organized to tell a broader story about Freud. Worth seeing. 
  • Well at least that was the rather good line from a play on the great doctor. Much maligned, quite unjustly, Sigmund is still the great grandfather of the talking treatment. Dr Freud and his daughter A...  more »

  • Its a great museum to visit. Small. One can visit the 2 floors in less than 2 hrs. Full of interesting items. Too bad the patio is not in used as a cafe or something similar. Free cloakroom. Audio guide is not of great help.
  • Interesting enough if you have an interest in Freud (which I don't: I was there with a friend). Could have done without the Freud fan-boys and girls who gushed about everything: plainly psychology students. The gift-shop - which you do not have to exit via - is hilariously tasteless.
  • Freud was a great man. Also great was ur story of the 'inner city children' that scratched up Peter Crouches car. You said "i was wondering where the aggression was" and shortly after I found the car scratched up. Cool story, i enjoyed it but it was good you didnt actually do the tour because i wouldve challenged you hard on your ideas of how "inner city" kids are supposed to act. The caretaker was a dream though, the classiest man in the outfit we came across. He gets a (5/5).
  • 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!
  • 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.
