Freud's museum in London celebrated its 25th birthday

The museum of the father of psychoanalysis, Sigmund Freud, celebrated its 25th birthday on Thursday, 28th July 2011, in London.

The large, 20th century building in north London, is the place were Freud spent the last year of his life, having fled Vienna in 1938. He died in September 23rd 1939, aged 83.
Anna Freud, the youngest of his six children, who also became a psychoanalyst, had made arrangements before she died in 1982, to turn the house into a museum, something which finally happened in 1986.
The museum is visited annually by approximately 20,000 visitors.

The museum’s visitors can take a close look to the famous couch in Freud’s office where he received his patients as well as his collection of highly valued ancient artifacts. Many of those are exhibited in his office and library as are his coat, boots and wedding ring.
The museum is also home to contemporary art exhibitions that are linked to Freud’s work. A documentary on the life and family of Sigmund Freud, narrated by Anna Freud, is also screened in the museum.
