Yoda Guy Movie Exhibit Tours

Yoda Guy Movie Exhibit
Step into the world of Star Wars—and the mind of legendary Hollywood makeup artist Nick Maley who helped create many of the franchise’s most memorable characters—at the Yoda Guy Movie Exhibit in Phillipsburg. In the middle of a bevy of duty-free shops along Front Street, this museum and gift shop houses movie memorabilia, figurines, props, and holograms.

The Basics
Downtown Philipsburg might seem an unlikely place to see Chewbacca, Darth Vader, Han Solo, and friends, but that’s what you find at this shop. Book a tour to enjoy the movie relics, all of which come from the private collection of the creator of Yoda (and St. Maarten resident) Nick “That Yoga Guy” Maley. Storyboards, scripts, vintage movie posters, and behind-the-scenes photos from movies he worked on. 

Guided by Maley’s narration (from a DVD) and holographic characters, the tour offers insight into movie making—he worked on The Shining, Superman, the original Star Wars and The Empire Strikes Back, among others. Don’t miss his collection of face casts including Alfred Hitchcock, James Cagney, Abraham Lincoln, Angelina Jolie, and Michael Jackson, which Maley created for his "Thriller" video.
