Sigmound Freud was an avid collector of antiquities. He was also fascinated with the myths and stories that surrounded each object. Myths in Mind, at the Freud Museum, allows viewers to encounter these objects close up and explore their history. The exhibition opened earlier this month and remains on view until September 13, 2009.
The Freud Museum is located in Hampstead, London, in the home the family took residence in following the Nazi annexation of Austria in 1938. Aside from special exhibitions, visitors may also take house tours and organize research in the libraries.
