Code Name Mary: The extraordinary life of Muriel Gardiner

We celebrate the incredible story of Muriel Gardiner’s life, through family photo albums, unpublished documents and Muriel’s own autobiography, Code Name Mary. She was an unsung heroine, saving the lives of countless individuals from the Austrian fascist, and then the Nazi, regime, though frequently in danger herself.

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, while we are open today, numbers remain restricted for the safety of visitors and staff. The museum’s situation remains precarious.

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