A visit to the Freud Museum can help your students sort Freud-fact from Freud-fiction.
“They walked away thinking about the ideas they had discussed and talking about them enthusiastically and endlessly…”
Facilitated visits are a great way to get a deeper insight into Sigmund Freud, Anna Freud and psychoanalysis.
A member of our education team will welcome the group and introduce the house, and hold a discussion or Q&A after they’ve had a look around.
Groups wanting to explore the house independently can book a self-guided visit.
Self-guided visits can be made during or outside of opening hours.
Types of group visit
Schools & universities
We cater for a wide variety of student groups, and can tailor a visit to the particular interests of each group.
We specialise in demystifying psychoanalysis: making it accessible, engaging and fun.
School trips for A-level groups
The Freud Museum is a very popular with Psychology A-level groups.
Our education team is familiar with the major exam specifications and can hold discussions that enrich students’ understanding and appreciation of the psychodynamic approach while stirring their curiosity in this intriguing subject.
Our education team offers tailored sessions for senior citizens.
Freud himself was 82 when he arrived in London as a refugee. His attitudes to ageing are often a point of discussion with elderly visitors, as are the challenges faced by the elderly in contemporary society.
Service user and community groups
We welcome visits from community organisations and mental health services, such as:
- Support groups
- Recovery and wellbeing groups
- Therapeutic communities
- Psychiatric outpatients
- Survivor groups
Visits are an opportunity to explore Sigmund and Anna Freud’s home, but also to use Freud’s life, thought and legacy as a starting point for personal and emotional reflection.
