Yoda Guy Movie Exhibit reviews
The exhibit is excellent with replica movie pieces and scripts. When we went Nick was there and was super friendly and easily to talk to. I didn’t do the museum tour but I hear it was excellent.

Mister Nick didn't let us to see exhibit because he was going to the airport. I checked opening hours on the website before visit, but no announcement about not opening that day. Very unprofessional.

Nick was fabulous and such a treat to meet and visit with. He is a gem!!! His contributions to film are legendary and simply outstanding, even beyond what I knew from science fiction movies like Star Wars. The museum is well worth the low fee of $15pp. My daughter and I spent around an hour reading, listening, and taking in all of the history and exhibits,of Nick’s works and those of his colleagues. There are also many other items/collectibles for purchase, including autographs. Funds support this not-for-profit organization. “Today Guy” Movie Exhibit was a one of a kind experience and completely made our day in Saint Maarten!
On our way back from the beach we stopped in just to see if Nick was there and he was! These two were so lovely he was generous enough to dedicate the piece I purchased for my dad who is a fanatic! I would recommend for any sci-fi need to stop by if they’re on the island!
A fantastic little museum, with an amazing collection of inspiring film props, designs, story boards, artefacts and memorobilia! There are one of a kind treasures here that you can find no where else! Nick and his wife are truly wonderful human beings, and this place is an absolute hidden gem! Not only is Nick a master of his craft, he seeks to inspire others with his gift and words of encouragement. This museum and shop is nothing short of a love letter to an era of imagination, ingenuity and creativity in film making that sadly is lacking these days due to digital effects. What also makes this museum so special, is that even if your not a big starwars fan, there is plenty here to capture your interest! This museum has a vast collection of "death masks" and casts of historical and famous figures! Some of the death masks I was not expecting at all, and completely wowed! There is a special magic with this place that I cannot describe, you just have to experience it. There were times where I couldn't help but feel emotional about how greatful I was that Nick is trying to preserve all this history of movie making magic, for future generations to enjoy. It's not just through displays of "items" it's through exclusive knowledge from those who helped create them that Nick has interviewed. As time goes on we lose more practical effects masters, prop makers and artists, and when we lose them, we lose their stories, their knowledge and their insights. Nick wants to preserve that, and runs this beautiful place as a non profit. So not only do you get to see amazing things, you get help preserve history and worthwhile cause. Thank you Nick for your time and patience, for my many, many questions!
Great place. My retired-teacher step mom didn't know what she was in for and she wasn't thinking it was going to be much. She was won over by Nick's involvement in 60 some movies, his philosophy on life, and his support of children. Thank you Nick for a wonderful day.
Amazing; Prior to my St Marteen port stop I had read about this place, so I decided to stop. WOW, I am a fan of science fiction and the Star Wars trilogy(4-6) but I never expected to see an amazing display of a variety of Science fiction characters, collections, pictures, film clips I could go on and on. This place is amazing, even if you are not a scifi fan you need to drop in and visit the museum, Very well laid out and the displays are awesome. The owners Nick and Gloria are wonderful people filled with knowledge. Defiantly will have to make a return trip.
