Owner description: The Yoda Guy Movie Exhibit, nestled amongst Front Street's duty free jewelry stores, is possibly the most surprising enterprise in the Caribbean. Who would expect to find Darth Vader, Pinhead from HELLRAISER and Riddley Scott's ALIEN in St Maarten? But this unprecedented showcase has that and a whole lot more. There are displays that span six decades of movie making, relics from THE TERMINATOR, MEN IN BLACK and even THE MALTISE FALCAN. There's also an incredible collection of lifecasts, the actual faces of Hollywood stars, From Bogart & Brando, though Sean Connery & Jack Nicholson to Michael Jackson, Johnny Depp & Angelina Jolle. The collection is extended to include famous historical figures too… the actual faces of Abraham Lincoln, (cast 3 months before his assassination), Benjamin Franklin and George Washington, (cast in. 1778 and 1783 respectively by french sculptor Jean Antoine Houden), and death masks of both Oliver Cromwell, (1658) and Vladimir Lenin (1924). The Exhibit is the brainchild of Hollywood creature effects wizard Nick Maley, known as "that Yoda Guy" for his contribution to the creation of Yoda for the STAR WARS sagas. If you don't know who Nick is, just google his name. He made over 50 movies, including SUPERMAN, HIGHLANDER, KRULL & LIFEFORCE, worked with Hollywood legends like Sean Connery, Sir Anthony Hopkins and Harrison Ford, (you will see them all in the exhibit), was featured in CINEMAX and HBO specials, won a place in THE GUINNESS BOOK OF WORLD RECORDS and was nominated for an EMMY. Nick shares his professional perspective on the making of famous movies via DVD and, if you are lucky enough to find him there, he will dedicate purchases from the Yoda Guy Shop and do photos with customers. The Shop sells signed movie memorabilia, posters, antique STAR WARS comics, behind the scene photos and storyboards… unique autographed slices of STAR WARS history that become a legacy to pass on through the family. There's also Nick's celebrated Caribbean artwork, (exhibited in galleries in 18 countries and toured the world with UNESCO. Nick and his wife Gloria have created the Yoda Guy Movie Museum Foundation, a not for profit group to oversee the Exhibit's development. Don't miss this once in a lifetime opportunity to support the museum and visit a STAR WARS celebrity. It is recommended on all major cruise lines as a MUST SEE for art and movie fans.

It has the best experience I have had in St Maarten, I had fun , Talk to Yoda Guy , Took I picture whit him, Went to the Movie Exhibit and got some souvenirs and ask question. The place needs more space "the guy" seems to have a lot of stuff bot has no her to add on his small exhibit. I loved the place and tell you if your a fan of old STAR WARS GO! its like being in a movie prop stop plus you see other movies "the guy" has worked.

To go to inside the exhibit you have to pay bot you can spend on the place and enter.

I stopped by walking down Front Street and the person there was a gentleman and a scholar on Star Wars. Spoke to him about the first trilogy and looked at many cool displays.

Found out about this place on Allure of the Seas. Upon entering we were treated like honored guests. Nick and his wife are amazing hosts and took the time to talk with us and share stories about the props and working on films. They have tons of art for sale and all proceeds go to keeping the doors open for the public.

We were staying St Maarten for a week and decided to take a look inside of this little entrance on Front Street. Wow what a great place. Nick Maley is a true genius and this is the guy who created Yoda for the Star Wars movies. What you can see! Story boards from movies, how he created Yoda, life masks of actors and great persons such as George Washington, Benjamin Franklin and others. There is audio for you to listen to how things are created. Afterwards, you will find that Nick is an accomplished artist and he is amazing to talk to. This is a must see when visiting St Maarten. You pay a small fee of $5.00 US for entrance.

I was walking down the street and spotted the Yoda guy museum. When I walked in I was greeted by the man himself. He had an amazing display of art work from star wars and other films. All purchases go to donations to keep the museum open for the public to enjoy. It was a great experience to meet him and to learn about the parts of star wars that nobody else knows about. I purchased one of a kind Star wars art work that will look amazing in my man cave. I hope that you can enjoy this as much as my family and I did.
