Geographical remit: 


The Freud Museum’s mission is to engage actively with Sigmund and Anna Freud’s psychoanalytic legacy in contemporary ideas, art, and culture, while caring for the house and collections at 20 Maresfield Gardens for the inspiration, enjoyment and learning of all.

Every year we host thousands of visitors of all ages, many of whom travel from across the globe to visit the museum to be inspired, educated and amazed by the important and wide-reaching legacies of Sigmund and Anna Freud. 


The Freud Museum London has a broad range of research resources including Freud's personal library and collection, Anna Freud's personal library, an archive containing essential documentation on the life and work of Sigmund and Anna Freud and the history of psychoanalysis, a research library specialising in the history, theory and culture of psychoanalysis, a large library of photographs. Our busy education service caters for groups in primary, secondary and tertiary education, universities as well as adult and older learner groups. We offer KS2 workshops for primary school pupils. Based on the life and work of the pioneer of child psychoanalysis, Anna Freud, this workshop draws on Anna Freud's principles and techniques to help children develop positive approaches to their mental and emotional wellbeing.

The lively conferences and education programme features leading writers, academics, and commentators and in previous years has included Jeannette Winterson, Edmund de Waal and George Makari.

Our cutting-edge exhibition programme, in which artists create new work in response to the house, has attracted major artists, including Turner Prize winner Mark Wallinger, Louise Bourgeois and Sarah Lucas.
