Event Details

Once a term, SSHM invites taught postgraduate students to explore the rich and unique medical history of London through a series of museum trips. These events provide an excellent opportunity for postgraduate students to meet across programmes and interact with staff outside of the department.


The second excursion will start at 13:30 on Wednesday February 25th. We will be heading from Strand Campus to 20 Maresfield Gardens - the family home of the Freud’s between 1938-1982 and now host to the Freud Museum. The museum itself houses Sigmund Freud’s study, preserved just as it was in his lifetime, along with the iconic ‘psychoanalytic couch’ and the Freud family’s sizeable library and antiquities collection.


Following an introductory speech and the opportunity to soak in the history of the house, we will receive a talk from the curator about Freud’s legacy as a pioneer of psychoanalysis. Afterwards, those who aren’t struggling to rationalize between their id and super-ego are invited to a nearby pub.

This year, all museum entry fees and transport costs to the venues are generously being covered by the KCL Faculty of Social Science and Public Policy.


Students will have the opportunity to reflect on their experience afterward in short essays(around 1000 words), either individually or in groups, or submit other reflections on the tour (e.g. poem, drawing, collage). The best pieces will be published on the departmental blog (providedyou agree). Please send your work of ~500-1000 words (if you are writing) to (cc


Background readings and additional information will be circulated before the outing. Please register through Eventbrite and feel free to get in touch by Email if you have any questions.


We look forward to seeing you!
