How You Can Help

20 Maresfield Gardens, London, holds a special place in people’s hearts as the home of Sigmund and Anna Freud, where they lived, worked and died.

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 is a charity and receives no direct public funding. We rely on generous friends who share our passion and support our work. We have been resourceful in maximizing available funds and developing alternative income streams during the pandemic. However, the museum’s situation remains precarious.

Your support, large or small, will make a huge difference to us – thank you.
