The exhibition does not deliver. It's a real shame that such an extense and potentially inspiring topic is just covered by a few accounts of certain doctors treating women at the time. A bunch of poorly written and superficial posters giving facts about a group of hospitals and doctors. But the facts are more suited to a boring history textbook than to an exhibition in a museum such as the Freud's. There is a total lack of will to explore the really rich and interesting social and gender issues under the surface. The museum prefers to stay politically correct, as usual, and just deliver bland facts about honourable and less well-known people, instead of really bringing out discussion and knowledge. Very disappointed.
