Sigmund Freud Museum 2020
In order to preserve the unique site of the Sigmund Freud Museum and to continue to be able to discuss Freud’s thought and work at its place of origin an urgent need of action is required: the house needs to be renovated, the museum and the library are not barrier free, service facilities for visitors are insufficient and the exhibition is not up to date.
Thanks to the support of the City of Vienna and the Ministry of Cultural Affairs we now have the chance to save this unique cultural heritage for the future. For this purpose we also need your support to let the project SIGMUND FREUD MUSEUM 2020 come true!
A Cordial Invitation
Barrier-free Access to the Museum and Library
Service & Café Berggasse 19
The visitor service facilities are easily accessible on the ground floor. The new café serves as a social meeting point for the numerous visitors of the museum and for the local neighborhood of Servitenviertel.
Freud’s Office: Treatment Room and Study
Freud’s treatment room and the empty space left by his couch serve as a vestigial memory space. The museum presentation discusses questions of psychoanalytic practice and its methods. In Freud's study, his theory formation is spotlighted based on his correspondence and the numerous works that he wrote here.
Special and Temporary Exhibitions
Our aim is to investigate and harness Sigmund Freud’s cultural legacy by examining current questions as they pertain to a range of disciplines of science. Dedicated to the history of psychoanalysis in the spheres of social science and the humanities, the current importance of psychoanalysis is subjected to critical scrutiny in theory and practice and presented to a wide audience.
