We hope you enjoy your visits to Freud's home.

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

The Freud Museum is an independent charity and receives no public funding.

We rely on the support of our visitors, our friends and our patrons to continue our work – from opening our doors to visitors and maintaining Freud’s home and collections, to delivering an innovative outreach and education programme, and running a lively annual calendar of events and exhibitions.

With your help, we can continue our work to preserve the legacy of Sigmund and Anna Freud, and embark on more ambitious plans to build a secure and sustainable future.
