The Freud Museum was also the home of Sigmund Freud and his family following their escape from Austria during the Nazi invasion of 1938. Although the founder of psychoanalysis died only a year later, his daughter, Anna Freud, continued to live in the house until her passing in 1982.
The museum features an amazing collection of approximately 2,000 items, including Egyptian, Greek and Oriental antiques, along with the Freud’s own personal library stacked high in the shelves. The centre piece is, of course, Freud’s famous couch, where his patients would come to lie down and reveal their inner most thoughts. Anna Freud continued her psychoanalytic work and the house also contains much of her own materials and personal effects.
