The Freud Museum London was the final home of Sigmund Freud, the founder of psychoanalysis, who came here with his family in 1938, after fleeing Nazi-occupied Vienna. Here you'll find Freud's original study and consulting room, recreated as it had been in his Vienna apartment, and still preserved just as it was during his lifetime. The house also contains Freud's remarkable collection of Egyptian, Greek, Roman and Oriental antiquities. Among the book-lined walls and antiquities you will find Freud's iconic psychoanalytic couch on which his patients told him their dreams and memories. The museum also showcases the life and work of Freud’s daughter, Anna, who was herself a pioneer in the field of child psychoanalysis. The museum has a lively programme of events, courses, conferences and contemporary art exhibitions.
