Freud Museum in Vienna

If you are interested in psychology, you should visit the Freud Museum!

I am certain that some of you are familiar with Sigmund Freud, psychoanalysis and his theories about the unconscious mind. Located in the 9th district (Berggasse 19), the Sigmund Freud Museum offers an overview of the life and work of the founder of psychoanalysis.

The museum was opened in 1971, it was put together with the help of Freud’s youngest daughter Anna Freud and the rooms you can walk through are connected to their original functions. Freud and his family lived in this house from 1891 to 1938. The rooms are also connected to the history of each room, let it be the Freud’s sleeping quarters or Freud’s treatment room. Exhibits, including photographs, manuscripts and objects, give an insight into Freud’s work and the different facets of his life.

Linked to the museum is also the biggest research library for psychoanalysis, with around 35.000 books. One room even shows recordings of Freud’s private life, the clips are commented by Anna Freud. Besides the permanent collection, you can also learn more about the organized escape of psychoanalysts after the annexation of Austria.

The museum is opened from Wednesday to Sunday, from 10am to 6pm. More information can be found here.
