The whole neighborhood around Freud's old home has become dedicated to his legacy, but entering the museum, you can almost imagine the good doctor ushering you in and telling you to make yourself comfortable on the couch. Antiques and mementos, including his velour hat and dark walking stick with ivory handle, fill the study and waiting room he used during his residence here from 1891 to 1938. There are changing exhibits with topics like the doctor's travels, opening the experience up to a wider view of how and where he developed his theories. The museum also has a bookshop with a variety of postcards of the apartment, books by Freud, posters, prints, and pens.
