Freud Museum

Behind the façade of this typical suburban home, Sigmund Freud plumbed the depths of the human psyche – creating some of the most lasting theories of the 20th century. He had arrived in 1938 after being forced to flee from the Nazis in Vienna, and quickly set about installing his mighty collection of classical antiquities and books. The most famous exhibit here is the uncanny psychoanalytical couch where many of his patients unveiled their neuroses. Upstairs you’ll find the room belonging to his daughter Anna, a child psychiatry pioneer, and there are excellent temporary exhibitions on related themes. (The shop has every piece of Freud paraphernalia you could wish for, from finger puppets to the most worthy of tomes.)
