So the other day, I found myself on a loose end and decided to go see the Freud Museum. I’ve seen the notices for this for many many moons and its just near Finchley road….anyway, reach Finchley Road and pass Karnac Books.

Unfortunately, I wasn't allowed to take photos…so sneaked some in using my iphone :)

Ground floor had a giant study and a shop and a dining room along with a kitchen. The study is full of wonderful books on a variety of subjects, objects of art, paintings, and the lot

and the famous couch where he would ask his patients to lie down. What’s with the thing on the left? 

and after visiting some more of the rooms, I left, lovely place, it was a good museum, showing his life in Europe, how he came over, where he lived and slept. fascinating. I want my study to be like this.
