The Freud Museum in Maresfield Gardens, Hampstead, was the home of Sigmund...

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.

Visited with my daughter who is studying psychology and with my wife. It is unusual to visit a museum that is a house in a normal street and it was good just to see the inside of this era of house. The ground floor was most interesting with the famous couch and very interesting decoration. I found the ground floor... More

I brought a group of year 12 students to visit the museum last summer and was left extremely disappointed. Freud is a huge part of the psychology a level so all the students were really looking forward to visiting the museum. The day was left totally ruined by a young male tour guide who took it upon himself to attempt... More

What an amazing experience seeing both Anna and Sigmund's house. It brought the history of psychology to life and explained what it was like to live through World War II. I would definitely go back!

I came here with my friend and it was a beautful way to spend the afternoon. It was 8 pound in but 10 pound with the assisted information guide, which I felt was worth the spend. They gave me a receipt and said that I could attend the next time for free. It was an amazing experience to stand in... More

Sigmund Freud was here for only a year after he arrived in Britain before he died. His daughter, Anna Freud continued to practice here up to 1982. Many rooms in this beautiful Edwardian house remain as they were when he practiced with his votive statues, works of art, furniture and his famous couch and desk. It is still run in... More

See where Sigmund Freud spent his last days. Much of the house, including his desk, the infamous couch and his library remain as they were when he lived and worked there. His collections and their display will give you some good insight into the man outside the text books. Absolutely take time to watch the short on-site film about his... More

What a beautiful house. He lived there his last year before dying, and it was the wish of his daughter Anna to convert it into a museum after she died. Sigmund Freud's famous couch is here as well as his desk and his art collection and books (also personal items as his glasses and coat). Very interesting for those who... More

A dream for any psychology student to see the famous couch on which so many patients laid talking to the "father of psychoanalysis". His house and office set up was almost a replica of what he had in Austria before fleeing the nazis to come to London. So amazing to see the hundreds of books he read and loved, and... More

Very close to Finchley Road Tube Station, this museum is housed in Freud's residence. It is a beautiful large house which is very aire and a lot of interesting material is on display with information about the family. A good shop is onsite as well.
