The museum includes a variety of exhibits and displays that explore Freud's life, his theories, and his legacy. Visitors can see Freud's personal library, his famous couch, and a collection of his original manuscripts and notes. The museum also includes exhibits on the early history of psychoanalysis, the influence of Freud's work on art and culture, and the impact of his ideas on modern psychology.

One of the highlights of the museum is the recreation of Freud's consulting room, which has been carefully reconstructed to look as it did during his lifetime. Visitors can see the famous couch where Freud's patients would recline during their sessions, as well as other original furnishings and personal objects.

The museum also hosts lectures, workshops, and other events that explore topics related to Freud's work and the broader field of psychology.
