  • In 2013 my family was in Sint Maarten. My father found the Yoda Guy and left me and my young son to explore. Great father/son moment as we met Nick who explained to us his various movie highlights. Nick mentioned that his work on Lifeforce was his most challenging and rewarding. We purchased a Star Wars photo which he personalized by signing it for my son. Great experience and wonderful meeting and talking with a movie f/x pioneer!
  • The little museum was pretty freaking awesome. There are so many interesting facts and rare things to see. The "Yoda guy" was there and he was extremely nice. He is willing to sign and dedicate anything you purchase. In the store and take pictures with you. A must see if your are in Sint Marteen!
  • What an amazing experience to meet Nick the creator of YODA I am amazed and humbled at the same time. Such a great person and gave me a tour of his museum personally. I would suggest for EVERYONE to come and meet him and his amazing creations.
  • One of my favorite parts of the trip. The museum was amazing and Nick was there after to have a chat and answer and questions we had. He does amazing work and is truly a great guy.
  • 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.
