About
Discover the story of psychoanalysis, see Freud's study, extraordinary collection and iconic couch. This beautiful house in leafy 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.

Well worth visiting
Oct 2021 • Solo
Interesting house once lived in by Sigmund Freud now turned into a museum and exhibition space. Looked after by enthusiastic staff, the audio guide is worth listening to and if not the rooms have well curated information panels. The gift shop opens up to the garden, which is worth a stay to relax and contemplate. National Trust members get a 50% reduction on the adult entrance fee.

Excellent museum and wonderful staff

I arrived earlier than my booked slot however made feel very welcome and was recommended to use the audio guide. Such a beautiful house steeped in history and a lovely gift shop. Like other reviewers I think it’s missing a little cafe however would strongly recommend supporting such venues post pandemic 😷. An interesting, relaxing way to spend a Saturday ❤️. The kindness of the staff is to be admired too as I know for some people returning to museums right now is quite daunting. So thank you!

So impressed, learnt so much about Sigmund Freud, spent an hour and half. Listened to the audio your and explored each room. I would give it more stars if possible.
My photos don’t do the museum justice.

Disappointed
Feb 2020 • Family
Myself and wife made a visit with our daughter as it was recommended by her psychology teacher. Not that impressed. Not a great deal there, exhabition room was empty apart from a table and a few books, not worth the £31.00 we paid.

It is all authentic!!!
Oct 2019
To be able to see the place where this great person spent a few last years of his life and to be able to see his authentic collection of books and antique souvenirs was something special... And the famous couch, on which psychotherapy emerged, you just have to see it...

Fantastic, informative, great value!

Brilliant! Lovely building and very friendly staff. I paid my ticket and was told it was valid all year if I chose to go back. We paid a little extra to have headphones to listen to the audio tour. Seeing Freud's personal belongings including his actual therapy couch really was incredible. I also watched video footage of Freud with his family which really made me look at him through softer eyes. I would definitely recommend if you love Freud, psychology or studying psychodynamics and counselling. I'm looking forward to returning. Also has a small gift shop with lots of books and Freudian souvenirs and a lovely garden.

Sigmund’s last resting place and Anna’s workolace
Oct 2019 • Solo
It’s easy to forget Sigmund Freud was already in his 80s and dying of a jaw cancer when he came to this Hampstead house as an exile from Nazi infested Vienna in 1938 only to die here a year later. Indeed the very target plain couch on which he died as well as the carpeted couch on which his patients had lain since the 1890s were both on view today in the downstairs drawing room together with the artefacts of ancient cultures he collected from archaeological sites all over the world as a sort of metaphor for his own psychoanalytical surfacing of buried treasures from the human unconscious. But it was also the home and consulting rooms of his youngest daughter Anna for another four decades. Today being the anniversary of her death the tour of the house I joined focused upon her life and legacy as a teacher and educator of childcare professionals in the upstairs room which is a sort of museum dedicated to her memory. Downstairs there is a well- stocked shop including translations of Freud’s own works, books by others on psychoanalysis, early 20th century Viennese art, and prints by celebrated (mainly) British artists including Peter Blake, Prunella Clough, Matthew Hilton and Claes Oldenburg dating from 1996-7 as part of a specially commissioned portfolio. The garden was closed today.
