The Freud Museum


ANNIVERSARY APPEAL: Give £30 for 30 Years 
The Anniversary Appeal was launched in 2016 to celebrate 160 years since Sigmund Freud's birth and the Freud Museum’s 30th anniversary.

‘The Freud Museum is a place of mythic memory, a shrine, a monument, a haunted house. But it also continues to pulse to a lively current of problems and challenges. Sigmund Freud shaped the 20th century idea of what a person is; we would not recognise ourselves without him. Freud’s stories have become our stories, his map is our map.’

Professor Marina Warner, Novelist and Cultural Historian

Since 1986, the Museum has been engaging audiences of all ages and backgrounds with Sigmund Freud’s intellectual legacy through an innovative public programme of events, education, research and exhibitions. 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. Instead, we rely on the generosity of friends and supporters like you 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 a gift to the Museum.’
Carol Seigel, Director, Freud Museum
