The Force is strong in Philipsburg, St. Martin where Nick Maley — “That Yoda Guy” — has opened a museum. Possibly the most surprising enterprise in the Caribbean, who would expect to find Darth Vader, Superman and Ridley Scott’s Alien in St. Martin? The exhibit spans six decades of movie making, with items from The Terminator, Men in Black and even The Maltese Falcon.

You may not be familiar with his name, but Maley created one of the most iconic characters in cinema history with Yoda, and has contributed to over 50 movies in total. The collection focuses on the creators and the techniques that brought to life Yoda, Darth Vader, Chewbaca, The Terminator, Alien, Highlander, Superman, and other iconic figures of cinema. Free to the public and operated as a non-profit, visitors can tour the little museum and see movie history at its finest. And if you are lucky you can meet Maley and purchase a piece of original artwork.
