Visit Freud Museum, London - The Home Of Sigmund Freud
Located in London, it is the final home of Sigmund Freud, the founder of psychoanalysis, and his daughter Anna Freud, a pioneer child psychoanalyst.
In 1938, after escaping Nazi annexation of Austria, Freud came to London and moved in this house. All the furniture plus antiques are 100% original.
Although he died a year later in the same house, Anna Freud continued to live here until her death in 1982.
Freud continued to work in London and it was here that he completed his 1939 book Moses and Monotheism. He also maintained his practice in this home.
The centre piece of his study - & Sigmund Freud’s work - is his famous psychoanalytic couch. It has become a staple in depicting analysis ever since.
Freud’s couch is undoubtedly one of the most famous pieces of domestic furniture in the world. When Freud left Vienna for London, the couch came too.
The museum is dotted with all of his original case studies and patient records, giving us a fascinating insight into the world of psychoanalysis.
It also offers interactive activities, such as writing about one positive change we’d like to see in the world, as part of a manifestation exercise.
Visitors can fill out as many cards as they like, and then hang them in a separate room of the museum!
This is what it’s like! 😊 It was Anna Freud’s wish for the house to be converted in a museum, after she passed. It was opened to the public in 1986.
