Museum closed for renovation until late summer 2020

Dear friends!

Since the COVID 19 situation has repeatedly delayed our construction and renovation work, we are now planning to open the Sigmund Freud Museum in late summer 2020.

During this difficult time, we are working on the completion of the museum complying to all safety regulations and are already looking forward to welcoming you to the newly renovated Berggasse 19!

Many thanks for your understanding and – stay safe and healthy!
