A-Freud World

Freud Museum

The Freud Museum, at 20 Maresfield Gardens in Hampstead, was the home of Sigmund Freud and his family when they escaped Austria following the Nazi annexation in 1938. It remained the family home until Anna Freud, the youngest daughter, died in 1982. This
house has been converted into what is now known as the freud museum.

The museum has all the antiques possessed by the family. The centeral display is the work desk of freud with his belongings arranged on display. It also old memories of Anna Freud and several of remenants of her and her groundbreaking work In psychoanalysis.

Undoubtedly the most famous piece of furniture in all the collection is Freud’s psychoanalytic couch, on which all of his patients reclined. The couch is remarkably comfortable and is covered with a richly coloured Iranian rug with chenille cushions piled on top. Other fine Oriental rugs, Heriz and Tabriz, cover the floor and tables
The museum has been featured in several movies, holds regular exhibitions and also undertakes educational endeavours including a web series. Regular workshops are held and all information is available on the website.
