Sigmund Freud museum in Vienna

Sigmund Freud is one of the great intellectual figures in history, being mainly the founder of psychoanalysis. Of Austrian origin, the place where he was born now belongs to the Czech Republic, but he spent most of his life in Vienna, although he died in London. Precisely, the place where he lived in the Austrian capital is now a museum in his honor, the Sigmund Freud museum you come.

On the tour of his old apartmentVisitors will enjoy an exhibition that reflects Freud's entire life in detail, highlighting the most relevant moments of this and which are already part of history. There are the furniture that he had, articles that he used every day, various antiques ... in addition, temporary exhibitions are also organized with articles that are not in sight the rest of the year.

The museum

This museum is in the Alsergrund district, specifically in the Bergasse street 19. It was built when Freud went to live there in the year 1891, being his home until in 1938 he had to leave the country during the WWII, which caused him to move to London. The rooms show that they are very old, but it is logical since they lived there for almost 50 years and much more has happened. In them he gave life to almost all his writings, and now they are the place where he can find a large part of his works.


It is also worth highlighting the museum decoration, which was the decoration that Freund had in his home and that he put with the help of his daughter Anna. Original furniture, a waiting room, a collection of antiques, the first editions of his works, signed copies ... all this is part of the decoration of this place, where every detail is immense historical value. At first, few areas were open to the public, but in view of the success rooms were expanded, and currently the entire apartment is available to visit.
