Fodor's Review

The museum showcases the life and work of the Austrian physician and scientist Wilhelm Reich (1897–1957), who believed that all living matter and the atmosphere contained a force called orgone energy. The hilltop Orgone Energy Observatory exhibits biographical materials, inventions, and equipment used in his experiments, whose results were disputed by the Food and Drug Administration and other government agencies. The observatory deck has magnificent countryside views. In July and August, the museum presents engaging nature programs; trails lace the largely forested 175-acre property, which has two vacation rental cottages. Reich's tomb sits next to one of his inventions.
