Support the Museum
2016 is a big year for us at the Museum as we mark 160 years since Sigmund Freud’s birth. To celebrate this historic milestone and mark the Museum’s 30th anniversary year, we are launching a major fundraising campaign to secure the future of this unique museum.
Since its opening in July 1986, the Museum has established an international reputation as one of London’s best historic house museums. It is also a centre for excellence in research and education, and a leader in cutting-edge, contemporary art exhibitions. Freud’s study, iconic couch and collection of antiquities remain the centrepiece of the Museum. The story of the family and their escape from the Nazis, and the intimate atmosphere of the family home, resonate powerfully with visitors.
As we embark on an ambitious programme to create a museum for the 21st century, we are seeking your support. The Give 30 for 30 Years appeal asks for £30, £300 or £3,000; a donation for every year that the Freud Museum has been inspiring and educating.
An independent charity, the Museum receives no public funding. We rely on the generosity of committed friends and supporters who are passionate about the Museum and its work.
‘At the Freud Museum we are proud of all that we achieve, but we do need your help both with running costs and with development. Many visitors tell us this is a favourite place – please help to keep it special by making an anniversary gift to the Museum.’
Carol Seigel, Director, Freud Museum London
