The Freud Museum was the home of Sigmund Freud and his family when they escaped Nazi annexation of Austria in 1938. It remained the family home until Anna Freud, the youngest daughter, died in 1982.

The Freud Museum commemorates and elucidates the work of Sigmund and Anna Freud and maintains their working environment. The centrepiece of the museum is Freud’s study, preserved just as it was during his lifetime. Perhaps the most famous piece of furniture in all the collection is Freud’s psychoanalytic couch.

Freud Museum often collaborates with contemporary artists to host exhibitions that reference and respond to the unique atmosphere of Sigmund and Anna Freud’s family home.

There is a shop well-stocked with books on the life and work of Sigmund Freud and books on contemporary psychoanalysis. It also organizes research and publication programmes and it has an education service which organizes seminars, conferences and special visits to the museum.
