About
Discover the story of psychoanalysis, see Freud's study, extraordinary collection and iconic couch. This beautiful house in leafy Hampstead was the home of Sigmund Freud and his family when they fled from Nazi rule in Austria in 1938. It remained the family home until Freud's daughter Anna, a pioneer of child psychoanalysis, died in 1982. Then at her wish it became a Museum. The centrepiece is Freud’s study, with his now iconic psychoanalytic couch and collection of antiquities, preserved as they were in his lifetime. The Museum offers a lively programme of events, courses and conferences, as well as a research resource, education service and venue hire for private functions.

    Nice place to be with a sad history
    It was Angerer pleasure for me to visit the Freud museum in London after I did the same at Berggasse in Vienna. A very nice place to be and to be on the journey to Sigmund Freud. A real must after you have been in his Austrian home to compare and see how he and the family lived after Nazi Germany forced the 80 y old man to leave.

    Educational and interesting experience
    This museum is an excellent place to visit for anyone who is interested in Freud or psychology. Having studied Freud at school and university it was very interesting to see this exhibition including his famous couch. At 14 pounds this museum is reasonably priced for London standards. The audio guide (own smartphone is required and QR code reader app) was also very informative and added to the experience. Sitting in Freud's garden was also enjoyable and I can definitely recommend this place as being worth a visit. It is a 5-10 minute walk from Finchley Road Underground Station and is wonderfully signposted from the station.

    An incredible visit
    An imersion into Freud's life. Since I'm a frustrated psychoanalyst and read many books about his life, I loved the experience to see all sculptures, objects and his divan. I got so emotional, almost cried while visiting the rooms of the museum.

Absolutely is mandatory visit to the ones that like History, Culture and mainly Psychology and Physicanalysis students and professionals… there you will find all Freud’s belongings, and his office / consultory as well, perfectly intact… special mention to Ricardo and Ana, the hosts and my country mates from Brazil… very polite and cooperative!

Entrance fee is too expensive for what it is. Enjoyed seeing Freud's office as it had been when he lived there.

The Freud Museum is a must for anyone interested in psychology or psychiatry. The house contains a lot of interesting information about Freud and his family, and is a window into life in the first half of the 20th century for an upper middle class family. The neighborhood is quite attractive and is worth walking around.

Although it was an interesting visit, mainly in seeing where and how Freud lived, in my view it was an expensive entrance fee, and I believe that more efforts need to be made in possibly displaying more educational type information, maybe interactive, of his and his daughters actual works. I believe that this needs to be brought to the forefront of the visit.

Although there were clippets here and there of their beliefs and works it wasnt in my view extensive enough or always easy to read? The focus was more on the environment in which they lived.

The garden was lovely; I am not sure why the hot drinks are £2 each when they come from a tiny machine that a member of the public would have in their kitchen? I thought that was a bit cheeky.

I am a total beginner with Psychoanalysis etc, and although I came away wanting to buy some books to understand more, this was more because I felt that my current understanding was not enriched further by my visit.

This is the house where Freud lived for the last year of his life having escaped Vienna in 1938. The house has been furnished with his belongings shipped from Austria including the world famous couch and objects from his art collection. It’s a small museum, and from the visitors present when I was there, very popular with psychoanalysts. There are informative films available to watch upstairs for those who aren’t as familiar with Fred and his work. There is also a room dedicated to Anna Freud.

It's not a big museum, but worth seeing how Freud lived, having left Vienna when Austria was attacked in 1938.

Nice looking museum. Its not too overfilled and the staff is really friendly. There are a lot of interesting informations about Freud and his last year in the UK. His backstory and his work. If you're interested in Freud and his work this museum is a must see.
