Delve into the mind of Sigmund Freud!

A facilitated visit to the Freud Museum

Learning visits are a great way to get a deeper insight into Sigmund Freud, Anna Freud and psychoanalysis.

Groups have exclusive access to the house and garden and can be facilitated by a subject expert.

We welcome a wide variety of groups, from students to service users.

Covid-secure measures are in place.

We have taken steps to provide a safe environment for group visits. Full details of our virus-related safety measures can be found on our practical information page.

Groups we cater for

Schools & Sixth Form

Encountering Sigmund Freud’s psychoanalytic couch can be a source of inspiration for young learners.

“They walked away thinking about the ideas they had discussed and talking about them enthusiastically and endlessly…”A Level Psychology teacher

A facilitated visit offers a rare glimpse into Sigmund Freud’s life and thought. We specialise in demystifying psychoanalysis: making it accessible, engaging and fun.

A facilitated visit can help your students to:

  • Discover man behind the theories
  • Enrich their understanding and appreciation of psychodynamic concepts
  • Stir their curiosity in this intriguing subject

Universities
“Never before have I enjoyed that pleasant sensation which may be called academic happiness.”Sigmund Freud

We welcome university groups studying a broad range of subjects across the arts, humanities, science and medicine.

A group visit is a great way to examine Freud’s ideas, legacy and place in history as well as in the contemporary world.

For many university groups it is an opportunity to develop an appreciation of the value of psychoanalysis as a critical tool that can be applied in their own field of study.

Learning visits are especially popular with psychology students and societies.

Senior Citizens

Learning is for life!

We welcome Senior Citizen groups, including U3A and independent societies and associations.

A visit to the museum is a great way to keep connected, active and learning.

Freud himself was 82 when he arrived in London as a refugee. His attitudes to ageing are often a point of discussion, although we find that many older visitors are more interested in connecting with Freud’s interest in childhood! Others simply wish to marvel at the house, collections and garden.

Please note that do not currently have a lift giving access to the first floor, or an accessible toilet. Further information can be found on our accessibility page.
