The Integratron is a 38 feet (12 m) tall (Appears to be only 28 ft tall?) cupola structure with a diameter of 55 feet (17 m) designed by ufologist and contactee George Van Tassel. Van Tassel claimed the Integratron was capable of rejuvenation, anti-gravity and time travel. He built the structure in Landers, California (near Joshua Tree), following instructions that Van Tassel vehemently claimed were provided directly to him by visitors from the planet Venus. The Integratron machine was started in 1957, the structure erected in 1959. It was financed predominantly by donations, including funds from Howard Hughes.Make Integratron a part of your Landers vacation plans using our Landers trip planner.
After Van Tassel's death in 1978, the building had a series of owners (and was left in various states of disrepair) before sisters Joanne, Nancy, and Patty Karl bought it in the early 2000s.

This place is incredible! Who would think in the middle of the desert. The sound bath was totally amazing, worth the money and I would do it again in a heartbeat.

This little gem is filled with art and a relaxing experience. If you like a good sound bath this is the place to go. The dome is acoustically amazing and the sound from the crystal bowls will melt away any stress.
