We also offer learning visits for a wide range of groups from schools to community organisations. Learning visits are a great way to get a deeper insight into Sigmund Freud, Anna Freud and psychoanalysis.
Groups have exclusive access to the house and garden and can be facilitated by a subject expert. See here for details and to make a booking.
The Freud Museum is a charity and receives no direct public funding.
We generate all of our own income and visitor admissions tickets are critical to our ability to keep Sigmund and Anna Freud’s home open.
Press tickets are generally not available outside the designated Media Preview Days for Exhibitions. A small, very limited number of press tickets may be considered for members of the press who are reviewing for major publications or broadcast media.
To apply, write to us at [email protected] at least one week (or a minimum 5 working days) in advance, and provide details of the media organisation, distribution and readership, and the proposed publication of the article. Please note that walk-up press ticket requests are not admitted and Museum staff do not accept generic media passes, staff passes or business cards.

In the local area
A short walk from the museum is Camden Arts Centre, a lively hub for contemporary arts.
Hampstead has a concentration of London’s hidden gems; small historic houses that have a fascinating story to tell about their former residents.
Further afield, across the Heath, is Kenwood – a beautiful stately home containing a great collection of Old Master paintings.
Do make the most of your escape from the crowds of central London by exploring these houses.
Along the way, you can wander through the charming cobbled streets of Hampstead Village, taking in the local shops, cafes and some famous old pubs, before heading for Hampstead Heath.
The woodlands and ponds of the Heath are popular with walkers and offer some of the best views of London.
