Wilhelm Reich Museum

is opens for season

RANGELEY — Orgonon, the Wilhelm Reich Museum, Dodge Pond Road, will open for the season on Wednesday, July 1.
Orgonon was the home of one of the 20th century’s most controversial figures, Austrian born physician-scientist Wilhelm Reich.
Now maintained as the Wilhelm Reich Museum, Orgonon is an historic site and nature preserve comprising 175 acres of fields and woodland, a system of trails, a conference center and the Orgone Energy Observatory.

The observatory is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Visitors will see biographical video about Reich. They then tour the building, view Reich’s scientific inventions and equipment, his study, library, sculptures, paintings and his personal memorabilia. Children will be able to explore a hands-on discovery room. And the observatory roof provides spectacular vistas of the region’s skies, lakes and surrounding countryside.
Reich’s tomb, with its bronze portrait bust, is in a forest clearing nearby.
A bookstore/gift shop gives access to Reich’s published work.
The observatory is open from 1 to 5 p.m. Wednesdays and Sundays in July and August; 1 to 5 p.m. Sundays in September.
Special tours are available year-round by appointment by calling 864-3443, e-mailing [email protected] or visiting www.wilhelmreichmuseum.org.
