A trip 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…”A Level Psychology teacher
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 you’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. There is an additional charge for self-guided groups visiting outside of public opening hours, when the museum and shop are opened especially for your group.
Groups we cater for

We cater for a wide variety of student groups, and can tailor a visit to the particular interests of each group.

A Level groups
The Freud Museum is especially popular with A Level Psychology 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.

- Philosophy and Ethics
- Religious Studies
- English Literature

Senior citizen groups
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, and to reflect on Freud’s life, thought and legacy.

There is a minimum of 10 people for group visits. Groups of fewer than 10 people must pay the difference.
How long does a group visit take?
The length of a visit varies from group to group, but as a rule of thumb we recommend allowing 1½ to 2 hours.
How does payment work?
Most group leaders prefer us to invoice their organisation after the visit. We can do this if you fill out a short form upon arrival.
If your organisation requires you to raise a Purchase Order number, please do this in advance.
Alternatively, we accept payment on the day (card, cash or cheque). We ask that groups are paid for in one transaction; we cannot process payments for individual group members.
Can I bring a group during the weekend?
Self-guided group visits can be booked for weekends, but not facilitated visits. We can arrange private guided tours on weekends at an additional cost.
Are your staff DBS checked?
All members of our education team are DBS checked.
Can you provide a Risk Assessment?
A generic risk assessment is available to help you plan your visit. Please note that it is for guidance only.
Is the museum accessible for wheelchair users?
The ground floor, including Freud’s study, is accessible for wheelchair users. We regret that we do not currently have a lift giving access to the first floor, or an accessible toilet. For more information please refer to our accessibility page.
