The Wilhelm Reich Museum

Dodge Pond Rd.
Rangeley, ME, 04970, United States
TEL: (207) 864-3443

This sprawling western Maine museum from the trust of Wilhelm Reich, a noted psychiatrist, psychoanalyst, and scientist, spans 175 acres. The woodsy, trail-lined compound includes the Orgone Energy Observatory, which dates to 1950 and houses his office, instrument-filled lab, library, and painting studio. Orgonon was the name of Reich’s home, which now hosts conferences. A bookstore and a pair of rental cottages also populate the land, as do versions of Reich’s “cloudbuster,” a system of pipes that supposedly had the power to harness orgone energy in order to disperse clouds.
