During the closing time of the Sigmund Freud Museum, moving freud museum informs in two locations in close vicinity: In the Berggasse 13 (location I) a presentation by means of original objects as well as film and photo admissions offers insights into life and work of the founder of the psychoanalysis. In Liechtensteinstrasse 19 (location II) a well sorted book shop and museum shop expects you in the ambience of a 1950s café. Moreover, here films are shown and events are held.
In 2019 und 2020, Berggasse 19 will undergo necessary construction in order to preserve its physical presence and cultural heritage for future generations and to improve the ways in which the museum and its collections are presented to the public. From March 2019 the museum in Berggasse 19 will be closed. By that time you can visit the moving freud museum in Berggasse 13 and Liechtensteinstraße 19. Just a few steps away from Freud’s former premises, an exhibition with original furnishings, objects and images gives visitors a glimpse into the life and work of the founder of psychoanalysis. Films, a museum shop and a café enhance the exhibition experience until the museum's reopening in May of 2020 at Berggasse 19.

In 2018, the Sigmund Freud Museum explored the relationship between Sigmund Freud and central writers of his time. The special exhibition PARALLEL ACTIONS. Freud and the Writers of Young Vienna reveals the traces left by psychoanalysis in the work of Arthur Schnitzler, Karl Kraus, Hugo von Hofmannsthal and Felix Salten. Each author was assigned his own item of furniture which was turned into an exhibition display that demonstrated by showing selected writings, works and letters the major influence of Freud’s theory on them. During the renovation of the Sigmund Freud Museum at Berggasse 19 from March 2019 to May 2020, the exhibition displays can be visited at four locations in Vienna.
“Just as we could say that the existence of our dream life is a continual memento mori and at the same time an approach to immortality, since dreaming seems to have nothing to do with the necessities of physical existence – so collecting may be the same kind of complex activity”, says Susan Hiller looking back at her work with Freud´s archive in the mid-1990s. (Hiller. Freudsche Objekte. Gespräche über Kunst und Wissen, Institut für Buchkunst Leipzig. Eds.: Julia Blume and Günter Karl Bose, Leipzig 1998.)
We mourn the loss of a great artist and generous supporter of the Sigmund Freud Museum Vienna.
