The Freud Museum London

A small, successful museum, Sigmund and Anna Freud’s final home and its powerful stories have been shared with thousands of visitors. The unique atmosphere of Freud’s study with his original couch, preserved as he left it, offers a deeply emotional and inspirational experience. Sigmund Freud’s home remains a beacon of the importance of depth psychology and the healing effects of the “talking cure”.

The Freud Museum receives no direct public funding, and, without visitors for several months, lost its principal source of income. We have been resourceful in maximizing available funds and developing alternative income streams, and have reopened to strictly limited numbers. But these measures are simply not enough to ensure our survival.

You can support the museum by becoming a Friend, Patron or Donor.

We are making as much of our lively programming, writings and commentary available to you online, including on the website, and through podcasts, live stream sessions and our social channels.

So please stay tuned for the latest from the Freud Museum on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook, and the website. We’re here and would love to hear from you!
