UK Patrons’ Circle

We want to make the visitor’s experience of Sigmund and Anna Freud’s last home vivid, challenging, and memorable. Improvements are planned to the access and care of our unrivalled collection. We will be providing ways for first-time and returning visitors to engage imaginatively with the Freudian legacy. Cutting edge exhibitions, both historic and contemporary; regular talks and discussions with leading writers and thinkers, an inventive education programme plus better interpretation are all in the pipelines.

As an independent museum with charitable status, we do not receive government funding; instead we rely on our own resources and the generosity of our supporters. By becoming a Patron you will not only help us to deliver our development plans and secure the long-term sustainability of this unique museum; you will also have the opportunity to be involved in shaping our future. Help us preserve the Freud family’s memory and make the museum a place for engagement, debate and enquiry.

If you would like to become a Patron or find out more, please contact Carol Seigel, Director on +44 (0)20 7435 2002, or email
