"They walked away thinking about the ideas they had discussed and talking about them enthusiastically and endlessly..."

Group visits can be facilitated by a member of the Museum's education team. This includes a welcome/introduction to the house, and a discussion/Q&A session about Freud and psychoanalysis after the group has had a look around. We can tailor the discussion to the particular requirements of your group.
Groups of 10 or more can book facilitated visits outside normal opening hours (i.e. on Mondays, Tuesdays, or Wednesday-Friday mornings). We encourage groups of 25 or more to make their visit at these times to get the most out of their visit.
For facilitated visits the rates are as follows:
Students (and accompanying teachers): £5
Seniors Citizens: £6
Groups can also book self-guided visits during normal opening hours. You will be able to see Freud's consulting room, couch, library and antiquities, and archive film of Freud and his family in Vienna and London.
Self-guided groups pay the standard admission charge.
Audioguides are a good way to get the most out of a self-guided visit.
The audioguide prices are as follows:
Students (and accompanying teachers): £1
Senior Citizens: £1.50
You can also download worksheets and discussion topics from the website.
The Freud Museum is very popular with A-level groups, particularly those studying psychology or religious studies. The Museum's education team is familiar with the major exam boards' A-level specifications and can hold discussions that respond to the curricula while helping students to sort Freud fact from Freud fiction.
Teaching psychoanalysis at A-level can be challenging: a cursory encounter with Freud's claims often leads students to entrench themselves behind the unproductive attitude that he was simply a 'weird' man. Our education team is there to help students move beyond this conviction by exploring their concerns in a self-reflexive way, drawing on their own experiences and perspectives to think psychoanalytically.
