Sigmund Freud Museum

Vienna, Austria
3.9 / 53
The Sigmund Freud Museum is a wonderful museum dedicated to the life and work of the father of psychoanalysis. Housed in an elegant building, the museum features numerous photographs, handwritten notes, and personal items belonging to Freud and his family. The experience of visiting the museum is fascinating, with well-presented information intuitively placed throughout the space. There is even a kids' version that simplifies the function of each room. It typically takes around 2 hours to explore the museum, and the gift shop is well-stocked with interesting items. Visitors praise the helpful and kind staff, as well as the tasty coffee. The displays in the museum are organized and detailed, with explanations available in both English and German. Many find the experience of being in the same rooms where Freud conducted his groundbreaking work to be incredibly cool, and the presence of actual memorabilia belonging to him adds to the authenticity. While some visitors feel that the museum focuses too much on irrelevant facts and lacks in-depth information about psychoanalysis, others appreciate the range of theories presented. Overall, the Sigmund Freud Museum is recommended for anyone interested in the father of psychoanalysis, particularly psychology enthusiasts, although it may not be as engaging for children. While some original pieces may be missing, the museum still offers a valuable insight into Freud's life and legacy.

Very, very nice museum. Expect to spend here at least 1 hour if you're going to read and observe everything carefully. The place has been renewed.
You must be a true believer for it to merit a visit. It could have better storytelling and give more insight for those of us who are not diehard fans.

Sometimes a museum is just a museum. Our time was up way too quickly, but I saved the museum admission ticket. It's my favorite Freudian slip.
