We stayed at the Wilburton Inn for 3 nights and the grounds were scattered with odd, random sculptures - some of them a little creepy, some of them just strange (gold Egyptian statues and Easter Island Head). It seemed like there was no common theme and landscaping was a bit neglected. Walked over to the museum area and read some... More

Really something to talk about. Don't miss the opportunity to discuss the works with Dr. Levis - you might learn something about yourself in the process!

I had the pleasure of visiting the Museum of the Creative Process this morning with a group of friends and enjoyed a great tour of the sculpture garden by Dr. Lewis. His thoughts and insights about creativity and conflict resolution through art gave me a lot to mull over for the rest of the day. It was so wonderful to... More

Very interesting. Museum is various pieces of art that the innkeeper has collected over the years. Truly a fascinating collection. Really nice and friendly owners. Max was especially welcoming, showing us the nice patio to a great lookout and more. Highly recommended if in the area.

there is no fee to see this. the art scupltures are scattered over the grounds of the wilburton inn. a different and new type of concept which is based on the owner Dr. Lewis's research. it will be a good idea to read what is written their on walls, the cycle to understand well. even better to go and meet...

The outdoor sculptures are worth the time to visit this property, but the real challenge is in taking the time to think through the theory behind them & their placement.

This 'museum' consists mostly of sculpture on the grounds of the Wilburton Inn. Dr. Levis, the owner, is a psychiatrist who expresses his beliefs about the correlation between conflict resolution and creativity through this 'art'. No such thing as a brief conversation with him, but, despite hardly understanding his 'lecture', we were charmed.

I would recommend this place to anyone who is interested in art, religion, or psychology. This is a walking tour though some interesting outdoor exhibits that will leave your mind wanting more. I’m interested in psychology so I wish I could have spent the whole day there. There are also nice grounds for the aspiring photographer. Thank you to Theo... More

The experience was great. My friends and I were staying in Manchester at the Equinox, and decided to take a look. For free, we were given a tour by Dr Levis' charming grandson Theo, who showed us the sculptural trail and the gazebo in less than 2 hours. The art was beautiful, and how it is displayed outdoors in the... More
