Overview

The Freud Museum occupies the former home of Sigmund Freud and his family. The focus of the museum is Freud's library and study, preserved just as it was during his lifetime, including his remarkable collection of Greek, Egyptian, Roman and Oriental antiques. In all the museum holds almost 2000 artifacts, including the desk where Freud used. Undoubtedly the most famous piece of furniture in the entire collection is Freud's couch, on which his patients reclined while revealing their innermost hopes and fears. The museum's central function is to celebrate the lives and works of Sigmund and his youngest daughter Anna Freud, but it is also being developed as a cultural and research center for psychoanalysis. The education service organizes seminars, conferences and special visits to the museum. The shop offers plenty of books on Freud himself, as well as a wide range of books on contemporary psychoanalysis.
