After hesitating due to the negative reviews on here, my partner and I visited the Freud museum late afternoon on a cold January day. Granted, we did not have to queue and there were only a handful of people inside, so I cannot comment on the experience you would get on a busy day. That said, the museum corresponded exactly...

waiting out in the hallway, i.e.: in the stairwell of the building to be called in is not my idea of fun. on the other hand maybe this system of ensuring that the rooms are not overcrowded adds to the experience - you know, patients waiting to be let in for a therapy session. once inside the visit progresses quite...

Interesting place to see and learn some basics about Freud's life. Go early in the day, otherwise it can be full.

The museum is not that big but has some cool artifacts and good history behind it. I am not a museum person but this one I would recommend based on the contributions that Freud made to psychology.

I am currently taking a psychology class revisiting Freud's work, so this place was of great interest to me. I arrived around 11:30 and the waiting line was quite long and took about 30 minutes to get into the museum. I actually appreciated that they didn't over crowd the place as that would take away from the experience. The entry... More

Were this apartment/office totally empty except for the original waiting room furniture and if each room had a sign indicating its use, it would be perfect. Better yet if there were reproductions of the original furniture that is now in London or lost. Almost everything done by the museum, distracts from this place's value for a visitor, though they have... More

This is a place that I always wanted to see, and it didn't disappoint. A must see. I walked from the main town in Vienna and it took around 20-30 mins, nice walk with lots of cafes and other sites to see. When crossing at the main bus stop, don't forget to have a look at the icon for crossing... More

I was a bit unsure of visiting this museum because of the not-so-good reviews on TripAdvisor, but I was happy I went. I found the museum very interesting and through the headset I got a lot of information about Freud. The best part for me was seeing the home videos of Freud's life with Anna Freud's commentary.

We both have a background in psychology, and even with this prior knowledg we found the museum to be poorly organized, overly cramped with items without necessary explanations and lacking depth. Some of the items are connected only vaguely to Freud himself, or are irrelevant as a historical item. Unless you really like Freud, it'll be hard to enjoy it.

This museum is really tiny place and really disappointment. If you have limited time, you shouldnt visit there. If you are interested in Freud, maybe you can visit with Vienna Pass. Otherwise it doesnt worth its price.

Staying in Serviten Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
Serviten Quarter
The Serviten Quarter is an inner city neighbourhood with many private charms. Popular with French and American expats, Sigmund Freud’s neighbourhood boasts his former practice and apartments, now turned into a museum. Stunning Liechtenstein Garden Palace houses the private art collection of Prince Adam of Liechtenstein. Romantic Strudlhofstiege close to the palace is a fantastic photo spot. With their small independent shops and eateries, the main streets of Liechtensteinstrasse, Porzellangasse and Servitengasse reveal much of this area’s character. Peek into baroque Serviten Church, with its richly decorated dome and walls. At the Old Jewish cemetery in Seegasse you can see one of the most precious cemeteries in Europe with tombstones almost 500 years old.
