Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.

Sigmund Freud's interest in Ancient Greece is well-documented (not least thanks to his naming of the Oedipus complex). His preoccupation with Ancient Egypt, however, is less explored. Inspired by the painting of Oedipus and the Sphinx that hung above the psychologist's famous couch, this exhibition features objects from Freud's own collection of Egyptian artefacts and explores the classically Freudian themes of sex, death and obsession.
