Overview

The Freud Museum in Maresfield Gardens, Hampstead, was the home of Sigmund Freud and his family when they fled from Nazi rule in Austria in 1938. It remained the family home until Freud's daughter Anna, a pioneer of child psychoanalysis, died in 1982. Then at her wish it became a Museum. The centrepiece is Freud’s study, with his now iconic psychoanalytic couch and collection of antiquities, preserved as they were in his lifetime. The Museum offers a lively programme of events, courses and conferences, as well as a research resource, education service and venue hire for private functions.

Impressive to see THE COUCH as well as Freud's art collection. An intimate glimpse into the ice of a genius that truly changed the way we think about unconscious processes. Highly recommended and in a great, more village like, part of London. Worth the detour.

The Freud Museum is so interesting, lots of information about Freud's life and so interesting to see Freud's last place of residence. The museum is over two floors and has a lovely garden and an excellent gift shop. Super friendly staff too!

enjoyed the visit to the home of two iconic characters of psychology - a lovely airy home packed full of artifacts and an equally iconic couch - relieved to see I'm not the only one with a desk on which there are antiquities :0)
