First of all, it's really hard to find - the "Museum" is a poorly-kept-up open building on the grounds of the Wilburton Inn and a bunch of sculptures distributed around the grounds (so there are no "hours"). The inn itself is very nice, but the Museum is just odd. The open building has a series of placards that explain (that's not really an accurate word here) some sort of pseudo-scientific new-agey approach to conflict resolution that, so far as I could tell, has a very loose association with any logic (or historical accuracy in some cases). If you're nearby and looking for a sculpture scavenger hunt, it's a brief and interesting trip (and go through the Inn, it's pretty fabulous). If you like museums or are interested in the creative process, you won't find a recognizable version of either here. (Not completely fair, I can see how it's *sort of* a museum)

Hi Michael, So sorry you were not able to take one of our guided tours. They are available by appointment on Wednesdays and Saturdays and are a way to open one's mind to how art represents history, religion, and society. The sculptural trail on the grounds of the Wilburton Inn represent a lifetime of studying how art and stories are integral to the art and science of psychology as a science that redefines how we use the Moral Science, a philosophy of psychology and conflict resolution, to solve society's troubles. We welcome you to learn more about our process and yourself online at museumofthecreativeprocess.com kindly, Amy

If you are in or near Manchester I highly recommend stopping by. The Inn has a fantastic history all to itself but the Creative Process is worth visiting just for a quickie experience. Still not exactly sure just what it all means, but the background story is compelling and the exhibits are fascinating even if you walk away shaking your head.

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 of the signs, but I didn't understand it at all - way over my head, I guess.

Hi Cari, So sorry you were not able to have a guided tour that explains the relevance of the artwork to the stories that have contributed to the way that our cultures have used creativity to solve conflicts. You are always welcome to come back and see what you missed! It is a profound and thoughtful experience that takes some guidance to understand the whole concept for most folks. We welcome you to have fun to explore and learn more about the artwork (and yourself!) by visiting our website at museumofthecreativeprocess.com

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!
