Sigmund Freud Museum
It is probably Vienna's most famous address: Sigmund Freud lived for 47 years at Berggasse 19 in Vienna's 9th district, from 1891 to 1938. It was from this house that he set off for exile in England with his family on 4 June 1938 to escape from the National Socialists. The museum in the former living quarters and office of the creator of psychoanalysis was opened in 1971 with the help of Anna Freud, the youngest daughter of Sigmund Freud.
The former apartment and practice of Sigmund Freud are now furnished as a museum. The Sigmund Freud Museum shows original furniture, including the waiting room and a selection from Freud's private collection of antiques, autographs and first editions of his works. It provides an insight into Freud's biography, his cultural surroundings and the emergence of psychoanalysis. Visitors will also see historic films from the private life of Freud and his family, compiled and commented by Anna Freud.
The museum has been gradually expanded since it was opened, gaining a library, a museum shop, storage rooms for the library and a lecture/exhibition room. With the acquisition of the storefront next to the entrance to Berggasse 19, in which Siegmund Kornmehl's kosher butcher shop was housed until 1938, the museum gained a new outdoor area in 2002. The storefront's large windows provide an imposing exhibition area for installations by artists from Austria and abroad.
