Since 1971, the Sigmund Freud Museum has been welcoming visitors in Sigmund Freud’s former office and apartment. Formerly a room of commemoration, the museum has developed into a tourist attraction with more than 100,000 visitors per year as well as a place of debate and discussion with research and education projects, scientific events and Europe's largest library on psychoanalysis.
In mid-2020, following a year of construction, the Sigmund Freud Museum will reopen renovated, expanded, and barrier-free. For the first time ever, all private rooms of the Freud family will be accessible including his “first” practice located on the upper ground floor. New exhibitions and the multifaceted architectural concept reveal traces of history and combine them with state-of-the-art museum standards. The museum has been operated by the Sigmund Freud Foundation since 2003.
