The Freud Museum
The Freud Museum in Hampstead was the home of Sigmund Freud and his family when they escaped Nazi annexation of Austria in 1938. It remained the family home until 1982. The centrepiece of the museum is Freud’s study, preserved just as it was during his lifetime, which features Freuds psychoanalytic couch, on which all of his patients reclined.
The museum also contains Freuds remarkable collection of antiquities: Egyptian; Greek; Roman and Oriental. Almost 2,000 items fill cabinets and are ranged on every surface. There are rows of ancient figures on the desk where Freud wrote until the early hours of the morning. The walls are lined with shelves containing Freuds large library.
The Freud Museum shop features work inspired by the extensive collection.
