In 1938 the founder of psychoanalysis Sigmund Freud left Vienna after the Nazi annexation of Austria and moved to London, taking up residence at 20 Maresfield Gardens in Hampstead, London's most intellectual suburb. Freud was over eighty at this time, and he died the following year, but the house remained in his family until his youngest daughter Anna Freud, who was a pioneer of child therapy, died in 1982. The house then became a Freud Museum.

The Freuds were able to move all of their furniture and household effects to London. The star exhibit in the museum is Freud's psychoanalytic couch. There are also Biedermeier chests, tables and cupboards, and a collection of 18th and 19th-century Austrian painted country furniture. The museum owns Freud's collection of Egyptian, Greek, Roman, and Oriental antiquities, and his reference library.

The museum is open to the public five days a week. It also organises research and publication programmes and it has an education service which organizes seminars, conferences and special visits to the museum.

There is another Freud Museum in Vienna.
