Not much to see but an interesting display of Freds life in Vienna. Also some information of Nazi terror and diferent handling of famous people like Freud and the rest of the family.
Freud still have a strong influence on psykologi, right or wrong.

This is worth visiting, just knowing Freud held forth here back in the day. But there's little of his personal effects here: the famous couch, the antiquities and the rest are all in London. But the exhibits were still mildly engaging. Less than an hour sufficed for me, and I'm a real Freud aficionado, with intense interest in psychoanalysis and the archaeology of the mind, Freud's guiding metaphor.

The museum is in the appartment in which Sigmund Freud lived for most of his life. The appartment itself isn't that special and looks a lot like other appartments in Vienna. The only mark left by the Freud family is the ceiling in one of the rooms, which was probably painted by Anna Freud at the time (if i'm not mistaken). The collection of items owned by Freud, the photograph of him and of his family members, are the interesting thing in the museum.
Still, Freud wasn't a great architect or a painter. His work consisted mostly on the written word. The audioguide, though it made some troubles, did a pretty decent job. At the end of the tour, it sort of Apologized, saying that in order to really get familiar with Freud, one should read his works and that a visit at the museum can't replace it. I certainly agree with the audioguide.

This small museum is situated in Sigmund Freud's own apartment. It provides a good insight into his life, his work, and his travels. The English audio guide has not been recorded very well and the beginning of each dictation is missing. Furthermore, the electronic guide is not able to describe the artefacts within the flat in English in the same way that it could in German. Still worth a visit given Freud's significant contribution to psychoanalysis.

This is an amazing view at arguably the most influential man in the 20th Century. This museum is actually Sigmund Freud's former home and office. Most of his original artifacts and furniture have been placed in the museum, including his famous Freudian Couch where he saw patients. Some amazing artifacts like the letters between Sigmund Freud and Albert Einstein. Definitely worth seeing if you are a history buff.
