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...more

May the Force guide you here….. Our visit to Yoda Guy Movie exhibit was ephemeral but memorable. Nick Maley and his wife Gloria are very welcoming, down to earth and wonderful hosts. Their air-conditioned shop is located right on Front Street. Don’t let the name...More

This place is wonderful. Nick is very friendly and willing to chat with guests. The displays are really cool. My favorite part was the behind the scenes photos from the original Star Wars set.
