Ida Applebroog: Mercy Hospital

The Freud Museum is proud to present the drawings of American artist, Ida Applebroog, from her Mercy Hospital series.

The Freud Museum is temporarily closed

Following the latest advice from the UK Government regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the decision to temporarily close the Freud Museum Wednesday 18 March until further notice. This is to help to protect visitors, those who work at the museum, and our wider community.

These are extraordinary and difficult times for us all. As you know, the Freud Museum receives no government funding and we have always had to generate our own income and rely on support from visitors, event audiences and generous private donations. It is this that gives us hope as we look ahead.

Although Freud’s house is closed, and events and courses suspended, we are working hard to continue to make 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!

Take care and we look forward to seeing you at the museum again soon,
The Freud Museum London Team

Please note that the museum team is mostly working remotely. For general enquiries, please email [email protected] and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
