Freud Museum London

Hero image for this day out

It's said that the 20th century person was born on Freud's couch.

Visit London's most intriguing historic house museum: the final home of Sigmund Freud, the founder of psychoanalysis, who came here in 1938 after fleeing Nazi-occupied Vienna. Here, among the book-lined shelves, find the original psychoanalytic couch on which Freud's patients told him their dreams and memories. The house also contains Freud's amazing collection of Classical and Oriental antiquities. Almost 2,000 tomes fill cabinets and are arranged on every surface, including on the desk where Freud wrote until the early hours of the morning.

The museum is also filled with memories of his daughter, Anna, a pioneer of child psychoanalysis.

House tours and exhibitions are free with admission. Visit, take in the current exhibition and browse for clever and quirky gifts in the shop.
