Sigmund Freud Museum

Sigmund Freud Museum

Vienna's Sigmund Freud Museum is located in the house in which the father of psychoanalysis lived and worked for almost 50 years.

Getting to know Freud

Through the more than 400 objects, letters, books, pieces of furniture and photgraphs on display, the house-museum documents Freud's life and work.

When Nazi Germany annexed Austria, the world-renowned psychoanalyst was forced to leave his home in Vienna and move to London due to his Jewish ancestry. He took many of his belongings with him, including his iconic couch, when he moved, but visitors to the Freud museum can still view his practice waiting room and his extensive collection of antiques.

The museum also features exhibitions showcasing the impact of pyschoanalysis on art and society through, including a modern art collection. 

Renovation works

From March 2019 until May 2020, the exhibitions of the Freud Museum will be temporarily relocated to 13 Berggasse while the original building undergoes restoration and improvement works.
