  • Unlike a lot of movie museums, the star of the exhibit is actually there. He is super friendly and loves to talk about his art to anyone that will listen. You can just sense the love and passion for his work. A great spot to visit, indeed, especially if you have any interest at all in movie props and history.
  • An awesome slice of cinema history tucked away in Philipsburg. Plenty of Star Wars memorabilia to satisfy your Force craving, while exploring the realms of special fx makeup from numerous films that he helped create. Nick is a wonderful man that will chat you up with an outlook on life that is very much needed in the world, especially for those who are interested in creative arts.
  • I am not a Star Wars fan but my son is so we went. I am glad I did. It is so much more than just Star Wars and Yoda. Nick Maley is very personable and feels almost like a friend by time you leave. He also sells his own original art and rare movie memorabilia. It's one of the most memorable things I've done on St Maarten and definitely worth visiting, even if you don't go through the museum portion.
  • Really cool place where else are you going to see this kind of stuff seriously there's all kinds of stuff from all sorts of movies. It cost me like $15 to take one of my kids in there
  • This is a great place! We got to meet the owner and creator of Yoda. They have a free section and paid section. We plan to go back and do the paid section at some point, but the free section was amazing! Cannot wait to bring my parents back one day!
