The Wilhelm Reich Museum’s Labor Day hours

RANGELEY - The Wilhelm Reich Museum, Dodge Pond Road, Rangeley, Maine will be open for Labor Day Weekend from Friday September 3rd to Sunday September 5th from 1-5 p.m. The rest of September it will be open Sundays only 1-5 p.m.

Few places in the world combine the intellectual fascination and raw natural beauty of Orgonon, 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 Orgone Energy Observatory is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Visitors to the Observatory can enjoy a fascinating biographical video about Reich. They then tour the building, view Reich’s scientific inventions and equipment, his study, library, sculptures, vivid paintings, and his personal memorabilia. Children can explore a hands-on Discovery Room. And the Observatory roof provides spectacular vistas of the region’s open skies, lakes, and surrounding countryside.

Reich's tomb, with its dramatic bronze portrait bust, is in a forest clearing nearby.

A bookstore/gift shop gives access to all Reich's published work.

The Observatory is open in July and August, Wed. - Sun. 1-5 p.m.
September: Sundays only 1-5 p.m.
Special tours year-round by appointment.
