The Freud Museum London is the final home of Sigmund Freud, the founder of psychoanalysis. The centrepiece is Freud’s study with its book-lined walls, countless antiquities and of course the original, and now iconic, psychoanalytic couch.  The museum also showcases the life and work of Freud’s daughter, Anna, who lived here and who was herself a pioneer in the field of child psychoanalysis.  The museum houses a reference library, photo library and archive.  There is a lively education service catering for primary  to tertiary levels.  The museum hosts regular contemporary art, historical and biographical exhibitions, as well a varied events programme including talks, workshops, tours and conferences.
